Practical

At Gent Jazz Festival we believe in innovation, and therefore try to be more and more progressive and environmentally conscious each year. In 2017 we will take an extra step and make the whole festival cashless!

What does this mean for the visitor? You won't be able to pay with tokens anymore. But see it as advantage, because you can't lose them on the festival grounds no more. Instead of tokens we will give you an electronic payment card. That payment card can be charged both at the festival area and at home, so you can avoid the waiting lines at the cash points. Because the payment card only needs to be scanned upon purchase, we limit the queues at the bars and foodtrucks and you can fully enjoy the festival. You get the message, you're the winner!
