MONEY: Should I bring cash or cards with me?
We are excited to be part of the cashless revolution with Glownet!
Going cashless means all our vendors (including food, beverage, merch & stall holders) will be using a pre-paid card system for transactions.
We’re making the process as easy as possible for you:
- Grab your $50 pre-paid Glownet card online when purchasing your tickets
- Collect at the Top-Up Booths at the event.
At The Roadshow:
- Purchase and top-up your Glownet card at any of the Top-Up Booths at the event.
- Pay with either Cash, Credit Card or EFTPOS
A $2 deposit is taken when purchasing your Glownet card and is refunded, along with any left-over credit, when you return your card to one of the Top-Up Booths before you leave.
