Graspop Metal Meeting is cashless again this year. From now on food and drink are paid with Skullies (our digital currency) on the tag of your wristband or Cashless Card.  These Skullies pay for food and drink in the festival arena and at Camping Boneyard, Inferno and Metal Town.

1 Skully is €3.50 and in presale you get 1 free Skully for every 20 Skullies purchased. Skullies are available in presale from Wednesday 17 April until Wednesday 12 June. Free Skullies can be used everywhere during the festival. They are the first to be used when you make a purchase but they are non-refundable after the festival.

Starting Thursday, June 27th at 10 AM, you can request your refund here. This can be done using your ticket code or the code on the back of your Tag or Cashless Card.

Ticket Code: To link your ticket, you will need the 9 characters under the QR code at the bottom of your ticket. (9 characters between **; note that a space can also be a character).

Tag: You can find the code on the back of the tag, and it consists of 6 letters (the 6 characters after “ID:”).

Cashless Card: You can find the code on the back of the Cashless Card, and it consists of 6 letters.

ATTENTION: An account is linked to a ticket. When you resell your ticket, the buyer not only gains access to your account but also to any purchased Skullies

There are several ways to upload Skullies:

  • Via your Cashless account
  • Via the GMM app
  • By scanning the QR code on the tag of your wristband or on the Cashless Card.
  • At the vending machines in the festival arena and at Camping Boneyard, Inferno and Metal Town
  • The top-up stations in the festival arena 

Check your Skullies balance? You can also do this via your account, in the GMM app and at any Cashless top-up station. After every transaction the (bar) staff will show you how many Skullies are left on your tag or Cashless Card.


Want to pool Skullies with friends? A Cashless Card is the perfect solution. Get a Cashless Card at one of the manned booths for you and your friends to upload Skullies. You can link this card to a single online account and use it to check the balance or upload Skullies.

Attention: Skullies cannot be transferred to a different tag or Cashless Card.


Leftover Skullies* after the festival? Then you can get a refund!

From Thursday 27 June, you can fill out a refund form to get the remaining Skullies refunded. Every refund is subject to an administrative charge of 1 Skully (€3.50). 

The refund period is from Thursday 27 June through Thursday 11 July. After this date you can no longer request a refund.  Refunds are carried out on 1 August 2024 at the latest.

* Only purchased Skullies are refundable.



Cashless? Is that safe?

Absolutely. Your festival wristband or Cashless Card is protected by encryption, making it impossible to copy info or steal the balance.

I created an account last year. Can I use that same account for this year’s edition and beyond?

Yes, you can still use last year’s log-in data. Just link the code on this year’s festival ticket with your account. 

Can I use leftover Skullies from this year for future editions?

No, Skullies are only valid for one edition. This means Skullies from 2023 are not valid in 2024. Likewise, this year’s Skullies cannot be used in 2025. However, you can get a refund for leftover Skullies after the festival.

Where do I collect my festival wristband? Where can I get a Cashless Card?

You can exchange your festival ticket for a festival wristband at the main entrance, at every festival campsite or at the VIP entrance. Cashless Cards can be collected from the manned booths. You’ll find them in the festival arena, in Metal Plaza and at Camping Boneyard.

Do Skullies pay for everything?

The bars, food stands, food trucks, campsite shops and bathing facilities at Camping Boneyard all accept the Skullies on your festival tag or Cashless Card. However, you still need cash or a payment card for the merchandise stands, kiosks, Festival Fair and Metal Market.

What if I lose my festival wristband?

Losing your festival wristband is like losing your wallet or ticket so make sure your festival wristband is securely fastened. 
Don’t panic if you’ve lost your wristband or had it stolen.
Go to the Cashless Helpdesk at the festival entrance and they will be happy to assist you. If you created an account our team can recover the remaining Skullies.

How do I create an account?

This is possible as of 15 April. Enter your ticket number before the festival. During the festival use the code at the back of the tag on your festival tag. 

Problems during the festival?

Members of our Cashless team are always close by: 

  • Our staff will be happy to help you at the top-up stations (you’ll recognise them by their blue vests).
  • At the manned booths there’s an information point where you can ask questions: in the festival arena, in the Metal Plaza or at Camping Boneyard..
  • The Cashless Helpdesk is situated right next to the festival entrance.

Problems before or after the festival?

Before and after the festival you can submit all your questions and/or remarks at

Want to check your balance?

There are several ways to check how many Skullies you have left on your festival wristband or Cashless Card.

  • You can do this online on your Cashless account, via the GMM app or at any of the payment or top-up stations at the festival. Your balance is instantly displayed.
  • When a transaction is completed the remaining number of Skullies is displayed so you can make sure you haven’t been over or undercharged.
Can I link two festival wristbands to a single account?

Within one account you can create multiple Wallets but only one tag or Cashless Card can be linked to every Wallet. Skullies must be uploaded separately to every individual wallet.

Can I use last year’s Cashless Card during this year’s edition?

No, this is not possible. Cashless Cards can only be used for one edition.

What personal data does the tag on my wristband contain?

The tag on your wristband does not store any personal data and it is not linked to your personal data. This is also the case when you upload Skullies offline (at the manned counters and vending machines on the festival grounds). If you decide to link the tag to an online account then certain data, such as your email address, is stored to be able to complete the transactions.

I want to resell my ticket, but I have already loaded Skullies, what should I do?

An account is linked to a ticket, when you resell your ticket you are also selling access to your account. Resale of your ticket therefore has consequences for the Skullies you purchased. For more information, contact

What are the costs of food and drinks at GMM? Then I can estimate how many Skullies I want to purchase in advance.

Our complete price list is in the making. A first list for drinks and food is available here. This list is regularly updated

Why is a refund fee being charged?

The refund fee is 1 Skully (= €3,50). Every refund is checked, which requires handling. These and other service-related costs are included in the refund fee.

If you have used up all your Skullies on your wristband or card, you obviously don't need to make use of this.

Tip: It's quite simple to close out your festival with a balance of 0, thus avoiding the need for a refund. For example, if you still have 0.3 Skully available, you can purchase an additional 0.7 Skully via the QR code, app, or cash register. With 1 Skully, you can then buy a drink, for instance. It can be that easy!
