Which payment options are available?

Pin + Paradigm Card:
1.) You can only use your pin/debit card at the bar.
2.) You can also deposit cash on a special Paradigm prepaid card, which will be available at the cash decks.
3.) Each prepaid card has a unique QR code. You’re able to check your balance by scanning the QR code from your card.

How does the hard cup and deposit fee system work?

We throw away 200.000 plastic cups each year. That’s something we don’t want to do anymore. From now on, we’ll only serve drinks in hard cups. Our goal is to get rid of the water bottles. We were aiming for Paradigm Festival 2019, but we need more time to perfect the process.

Here’s some information on how this will work during Paradigm Festival 2019:
1.) The first time you order something at the bar, you’ll be required to pay a one-time €1,- deposit fee for your hard cup or water bottle.
2.) Don’t want to keep your cup or bottle with you all the time? You can hand it in at the bar and receive a green cup token (old Paradigm tokens we used as food-tokens in the past).
3.) You can hand in the green cup token whenever you order next. You will then receive your drink in a fresh and clean hard cup or a new water bottle!
4.) Did you lose your cup or bottle? Then you have to pay another €1,- deposit fee for a new one.
5.) You can take either the hard cup or green cup token with you when the event is finished, or leave it at the nearest bar.
6.) The green cup token may be handed in for a hard cup during the next event (next day or night).
7.) You may collect cups and bottles, hand them in and receive a €1,- discount for each one on your order! The discounted amount can never exceed the order amount, which means you can’t get a cash-back.
8.) You can take the hard cup or bottle with you to the night events during Paradigm Festival 2019.
