WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH YOUR TICKET?

DIDN'T WE USED TO HAVE TO BUY 'GABS CURRENCY' AS WELL?

Not anymore, folks! This year we’ve done away with the tokens and wristbands, and partnered with the legends at Square to provide PayWave readers at every container bar, brewery stand, food vendor and merch stand. No more refunds to claim afterwards, or topping up ‘currency’ through the event! Just be sure to bring your PayWave or PayPass card, or any device with Apple Pay or Google Pay, and you’re all set.
