    • Reusable cups
      • Systeem herbruikbare bekers. Hoe werkt het ?
        1. Aan de ingang ontvangt elke festivalganger één ECO-TOKEN (→ combi tickets ontvangen twee ECO-TOKENS)
        2. Betaal je eerste consumptie en geef één ECO-TOKEN (per consumptie)
        3. Bij de bestelling van een nieuwe consumptie geef je één lege beker, PET flesje of blikje in return. Bij verlies betaal je 1 HOD coin extra (= 1,45€).
        4. Even geen drankje nodig ? Je kan steeds een lege beker, PET flesje of blikje inruilen voor een ECO-TOKEN aan één van de 'Cup Return Points'.

        Belangrijk

        • Je kan aan de bar nooit meer tokens of drankrecipiënten inruilen dan het aantal van uw bestelling
        • Een ECO-TOKEN heeft op zich geen monetaire waarde en kan dus NOOIT ingewisseld worden voor drank, eten of geld
    • Cashless
      • What?

        "Cashless" is a contactless payment system. It will facilitate your spending during the event (drinks, meals, merchandise, etc.).

      • How does it work?
        • Step 1: Register a secure cashless account online using your ticket barcode.
        • Step 2: Add the amount of money that you want to top up.
        • Step 3: When you go to the event you will exchange your e-ticket for a wristband/card that has your money loaded on to it. You can skip straight to Step 5!
        • Step 4: If you haven’t created your online account in advance, no problem! Just go to https://www.hype-o-dream.be/ca... and create an account OR go to the dedicated event top up bank and add funds to your wristband.
        • Step 5: You're now ready to get purchasing on site!
        • Step 6: If you still have money on your wristband after the event, you can apply for a refund from July 20nd until August 2nd by following the correct steps below.
      • Do I have to register?

        No, but we highly advise it! This will allow you to:

        • Top-up your account at any time on the website or in the festival app (and avoid queue on festival cashless banks).
        • Check spending history (and the one of your family’s, using different wallets from the same cashless account)
        • Register your credit card details and top-up easily
        • Block your wristband should it be lost
        • Easily reclaim any money not spent post-festival.
      • What happens if I lose my cashless wristband/card?

        As your account is linked to your wristband/card, you can block it by visiting the information point onsite. You can get a new wristband/card which will be credited with the balance of the chip you have blocked.

        If you do not create an account, blocking your wristband/card is impossible as we won’t have the unique reference number.

      • How do I recover the balance of my cashless wristband/card after the event?

        If there is money left on your wristband after the festival (min 1.50€), you have from July 20nd until August 2nd to make your refund request. When you apply for a refund there is a 1.45€ / 1 token fee.

        If you have created a Cashless account to ask for your money back you have to login to your account via the festival website and press the button « Refunds ». Your bank account will be credited at the end of the month.

        If you did not create a Cashless account then in order to reclaim your balance, you must create a Cashless account. Create your Cashless account by entering:

        • Your full name
        • Email address
        • A password
        • The barcode that is on your e-ticket
        • Your Bank credit card information

        Once logged into your account, click the « Refunds » button. Your bank account will be credited before the end of the month. Do you have questions? Having trouble with your account? Do not hesitate to contact us via cashless@hype-o-dream.be

    • Ticket info
      • I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT MY TICKET AND I CANNOT FIND THE ANSWER ON THIS PAGE

        You can look for an answer on this FAQ: https://customerservice.paylog...

        If you still haven't found an answer you can submit a request to our ticket provider: https://customerservice.paylog...

      • I HAVE ORDERED, WHEN DO I GET A CONFIRMATION MAIL?

        The confirmation mail is sent immediately after completing the payment. It may take a few minutes before it reaches your email address inbox. If you did not receive it after 10 minutes, please check your spam folder as it might have ended up in there.

      • I DID NOT RECEIVE MY TICKETS, WHAT DO I DO?

        You can receive your tickets again by requesting it in this link!

        It may happen that you cannot find the confirmation email of your order. This email contains the link to download or retrieve your e-tickets.

        We recommend you to check your inbox thoroughly also including your “Spam” folder.

        Note: The confirmation and follow-up emails are sent to the email address that was used to place the order. Therefore, in case you have not received the notifications, you can try checking your other usual email accounts. It may happen that you placed the order using a different email.

      • I AM NOT ABLE TO COMPLETE MY ORDER.

        Unfortunately it is not possible to complete a halted order. It is not possible to redo a failed payment. Uncompleted orders will be canceled automatically after a few moments and the tickets held in the order will go back on sale right after. The best thing you can do is to try to place a new order.

        Here are some suggestions that will hopefully help you successfully place a new order. You can try to place the order using a different payment method, a different browser (in our experience, Google Chrome works best) or you can try again from a different computer/IP address.

        Sometimes you may have left the payment process due to a loading error, internet connection issue or a window that is accidentally closed.

        If you are in doubt if your order was completed keep the following in mind:

        • When an order is completed with payment, a confirmation email is sent to the email address that was used to place the order in a matter of minutes (exceptions to this are Bank Transfer and PayPal payments)
        • When an order is not completed with a payment, it expires and becomes automatically canceled. In this case, you should attempt placing a new order.
        • Debit card Payments (also via iDEAL and Bancontact/Mister Cash), when successful, are immediately reflected in your account. However, some delay for our account to receive it and emit the confirmation may exist.
        • It is not recommendable to perform numerous attempts without certainty of their success or failure.
