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 Android Pay and Samsung 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.
If you're headed to the festival in a few weeks, you won't need to stand in any ATM lines. In fact, you may not even need to take out your wallet. That's because this year, you can pay with your phone for everything. Square is the exclusive point of sale at the festival, and every vendor will be using the latest (and fastest) Square Reader.
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.
