About the Future Festival Bootcamp

Moneyou and DGTL Festival have teamed up to hack the future of payments at festivals. We challenge IT-, Design- and Business-students to come up with out-of-the-box payment solutions to make long queues, overspending and sharing bills a thing of the past!

Are you in?

We are inviting you to sign up for our 3-day bootcamp and hack at the Startup Village in Amsterdam. Teams will be challenged to design and code a prototype of an app or cloud solution that changes the world

Best concepts have the opportunity to pitch at DGTL and to develop their concept into our brandnew payment app Moneyou Go. Awesome, right?

No hacking experience?

No worries! There's a first time for everything. There will be senior developers and startup specialists to give professional workshops and guide you along the way.

Hack the future with your friends


We had a blast at last year’s edition of Future Festival Bootcamp. Curious what it was like? Have a look:

The challenge: reinvent the way we pay at festivals

This year’s challenge is all about ’the way we pay at festivals’. You probably found tokens the day after or you stand in the queue too long while you could also party with friends. Or maybe you spent too much money, while your friend didn’t, and got a big headache the day after. We believe people shouldn’t worry about payments anymore in the digital age, a hangover of the drinks is more than enough.

So, we challenge you to come up with a creative solution that makes paying easier / more fun / in-control and fair.

Challenge #1

Make payments digital without losing the ease of analogue payments

Challenge #2

Sharing festival bills

Challenge #3

Visualizing and alerting on festival budget


Festival package (incl. guestlist tickets / merchandise / tokens) of the DGTL festivals


Off course you need cool technologies to come up with breakthrough solutions. Therefore you can experiment with exclusive bank API’s and Blockchain Technology. Professional development support and service designers will be available to help you out. You can count on a full stack development environment including:

  • Tikkie API
  • Blockchain Technology experts
  • Backend- / mobile experts (e.g. JAVA, .NET)
  • MoneyouGo Design kit
  • Payless API: Payless provides an API to interact with its cashless NFC payment system. Developers can read and write transactions of customers, as well as analyze data of events.

More to come!

About us

As a Digital Bank, Software Developer and University Incubator we work on exploring financial services and developing new technologies on a daily basis. We (Moneyou, ACE, InfoSupport) are fascinated by the limitations of financial services in everyday life [, for example] at festivals. And since the new festival season is coming up, it is the right time to combine forces to rethink the way we pay at festivals.
