Q & A
- Q. How do I put on my wristband?
- DO NOT put on your wristband until the day of the festival. It has a self-locking clasp that CAN NOT be loosened once on your wrist. As tempting as it may be, DO NOT PUT IT ON YET. Once on, it cannot be removed and wristbands cannot be replaced without a $2 fee.
- Q. Where do I get my Wristband?
- If you purchased your ticket prior to October 7th 2016, your wristband was mailed to you.
If you purchased after October 7th 2016 you'll exchange your wristband AT THE GATE. No need to head to a tent, head straight to the gate! Make sure you have downloaded your barcode BEFORE you arrive because cellular reception can be spotty.
