Frequently asked questions

What are RFID festival wristbands made of?

There are several materials from which RFID wristbands for festivals are made of, but the most common ones are made out of woven fabrics and have an NFC plastic chip attached. The wristband itself is extremely resistant and has a special closing mechanism, thus ensuring that attendees do not lose it. The NFC chips are waterproofed, allowing them to be used throughout the entire festival.


What is the difference between NFC and RFID wristbands for festivals(and technology)

NFC (near-field communication) is a subset of RFID technology. It’s a form of wireless connectivity that allows two devices placed within 1.5 inches (or around 4 cm) to communicate with each other. While RFID-enabled devices can communicate to ranges up to 100 meters (or even more) and can be used for different activities, the NFC protocol is used for payments.


How do RFID wristbands for festivals work?

The magic stands in the NFC chip. With our cashless payment system, the chip becomes a digital wallet gateway. Each time the wristband is tapped, the system checks the digital account associated with this event wristband and operates the required action. Not to worry – this digital walled is automatically created by the system and it’s backed up by a distributed ledgers system. Thus making it impossible for someone to access it without the actual NFC chip.


Do you provide personalized festival wristbands?

Not only that we can provide personalized festival wristbands, but we encourage all our partners to personalize them. This option represents an important new revenue stream for festivals, as sponsors are looking to be present in front of your audience.


How to make copies of RFID festival wristbands?

Unfortunately for fraudsters, our NFC/RFID festival wristbands cannot be copied. We do not store any personal or financial information on the chip itself and any duplication attempts/system anomalies are immediately flagged by our anti-fraud parameters.
