Disabled access

There is a disabled customers hotline number to call when booking tickets to reserve a place on the platform or to discuss their access requirements. Disabled customers will be provided with one free ticket for their helper, where required. The disabled access ticket line telephone number is 0207 195 2133 or email access@wirelessfestival.co.uk.

Contactless-enabled payment

Wireless is offering festival goers the chance to attend without having to carry cash by having a token 'Cash on a Wristband' system. But it won't be the only option organisers are keen to assure attendees that cards from other banks, as well as cash, will still be freely accepted at the event.

There will help points, and will they will only be live for the festival period and will be deactivated after the festival. Any remaining money on the Barclaycard PayBands will be refunded to the original card shortly after the festival.

Users will be able to top up their Barclaycard PayBand online before the festival, or on site using any Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card (don't forget your card and pin folks). Once the wristbands are topped up again they can be used to pay for everything at the festival, from drinks to T-shirts, as well as say organisers, to gain access to their 'VIP' areas.

Barclaycard PayBands will be available to apply for prior to the event, at www.barclaycardpayband.com. Numbers are limited apparently, so not everyone will get the chance to use them, and festival-goers are advised to apply early to receive their pre-festival packs, a £5 incentive for auto-top ups and most importantly, eligibility for onsite benefits. Although registration and top-up facilities will also be available at the festival.

Getting there

Hyde Park is in the heart of London and accessing the festival is easy with a variety of tube lines and bus routes available.

More information will be here when available.
