FESTIVAL CURRENCY

This year the Bendigo Craft Beer & Cider Festival will operate a digital currency for the 2018 event, to ensure speed of service, increased security and ease of transactions at the many Bars, Food Outlets and Merchandise Stall.

Most importantly, there will be reduced need to wait in lines, rustling around trying to find your tokens to buy a beer, as your friends get thirsty for your round! As such, all food, merchandise and drinks purchased at the festival will need to be paid for using the simple, tap-and-go Festival Currency Wristbands. Festival Currency wristbands can be topped up at currency stands or by our roaming top-up currency sellers.

Bendigo Craft Beer & Cider Festival is a ‘cashless’ festival. In other words, to buy food and drinks at the event you’ll need to use festival currency as CASH WILL NOT be accepted by vendors.

You can buy festival currency at the event (with exact cash or credit card).
