Square has announced that it is bringing NFC payment support to the 2016 Coachella music festival. The latest Square Reader, which supports NFC payment systems like Apple Pay, will be available as the exclusive point-of-sale during the festival, letting attendees pay for anything without needing to take out their wallets.
With just a tap of your phone or Apple Watch, you can pay for everything from pizza to beer to festival merch. An added plus: contactless payments like Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay are way faster than credit card payments (not to mention cash), so you can check out quickly and get back to the music or your beer.
Of course, if you still prefer paying with a physical credit or debit card, the new Square Reader also accepts EMV chip cards, which have recently started rolling out in the United States.
The 2016 Coachella festival will take place April 15-17 and 22-24 in Indio, California.
