  • Re-admittance to the site is only possible once you have got your wristband. Entrance to the arena is only possible with a valid wristband. There is no readmission on day tickets.
  • Wristbands removed from the wrist or tampered with will be rendered invalid and will not be replaced.
  • To avoid any disappointment we advise all ticket holders to leave plenty of time to get their wristband and allow time to walk to the arena and the stages to avoid missing any of your chosen acts.
  • We advise all day ticket purchasers to arrive early to avoid missing any of their chosen acts and to leave ample time to get from the day arena entrance to the stages.
