Cashless payment system at RWMF 2015

The 18th edition of the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) is embarking on a cashless payment system where festival goers will be able to make purchases using  ‘top up’ card for its food outlets and village mart. Almost all vendor outlets will participate in this cashless payment system allowing festival goers to be tagged with a Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) wrist band at registration counters before entering the festival premise.

Festival goers will be required to pre-purchase or reload their e-coupons which will be ‘loaded’ into their respective RFID tags for purchases of items at the venue.

Top-up stations are available at the event site where guests can buy and reload their e-coupons via cash or credit/debit cards only and purchased value is non-refundable if the remains are unused after the festival.

Apart from the stage shows, the festival food mart will have a range of delectable delights ranging from local Sarawak to western cuisines while Village Mart will sell local arts and crafts.

The Mart will operate from 10:00am until midnight during the Festival days. Entrance tickets are now available on sale and for more information on the festival, please log on to the festival website at
