Where do I get my bar code scanned to receive my wristband?
Right across the street (Patterson St.) from the parking lot there will be a tent on the right-hand side. This is the ‘Scan-In Tent.’ Upon arrival, take your ticket there to be scanned and you will be given a wristband for the duration you attend the festival. Once you have your wristband you will not need to visit the scan gate again, just keep your wristband on for the rest of your time in the amphitheatre.

Am I allowed to bring a cooler into the amphitheater?
No you are not allowed to bring coolers or outside food and drink into the amphitheater. Once inside food, drinks and other beverages will be available.
