VIP wristbands will be distributed on the Friday night Campfire Jam. If VIP attendees do not show up on Friday night, they can collect their VIP wristband at Will Call on Saturday. GA will be all Mobile Delivery.

Removing a wristband automatically voids it (unless by accident or for safety reasons, in which case you need to get a replacement wristband from a customer service booth at the festival – this will require you to prove your purchase information). Festival Security will check every wristband to assure it has not been removed or passed between multiple people.
