Is the festival run cashless?

For NGOs: On cashless festivals, you can't use (...surprisingly) cash! Sometimes you can pay with debit or credit card instead; sometimes you can pay with your smartphone; sometimes there is a chip in your wristband that you have to charge with money from your bank account. Make sure you know how money is handled on site and adapt your project accordingly. E.g., asking for cash donations won't be successful at a cashless festival!
