Register your ticket online and ‘top up’ by loading prepaid ‘Shells’ into your cashless account before you arrive – this will save you loads of time at the event, so you can go straight to partying! You can also add more funds to your account at a physical Top-up Station located throughout the event or through your wristband.
Once your account is topped-up, you’re ready to make purchases onsite by simply tapping your wristband to one of the payment points at the vendor stands. The amount will automatically be deducted from your account – it’s quick and easy! After the festival, we will refund the remaining "Shells”!
We are cashless
Register & Top Up
Ostend Beach 2023 will be using RFID-enabled wristbands and cashless payment technology to enhance your festival-going experience! You can upgrade your ticket and this will be exchanged to your personal wristband at the entrance. It will also be used as your digital wallet to make purchases at the festival – all with a simple tap of your wristband!
This means you don’t have to worry about walking around the festival with your wallet or fumbling for change; instead, enjoy fast, convenient and secure transactions at all food vendors, bars and merchandise tents on-site using your high-tech, RFID-enabled wristband. Cashless is the only method of payment accepted on-site using ‘Shells’ as the official currency of Ostend Beach.
Payconiq by Bancontact
PUT CREDITS IN YOUR WRISTBAND WITH PAYCONIQ BY BANCONTACT
As you probably know we are a cashless festival, that means you will get a wristband with a chip on it. On this chip you’ll have to load up money to be able to buy drinks and food. For a perfect Ostend Beach experience you should consider putting credits on your personal account before the festival weekend.
NO QUEUING AT THE FESTIVAL
The second advantage will change the way you enjoy our festival. Thanks to the Payconiq by Bancontact app you will be able to scan the QR code that’s on your wristband’s chip and directly (send money) add credits on it. No time lost queuing in line to recharge your wristband and way more time to spend on the dance floor!
