A new change for this year’s edition is that attendees will be stamped upon entry each day.

The goal of this change is to reduce fraud and increase safety of participants.  Attendees must have a wristband and stamp in order to re-enter the festival, should they choose to leave before the event concludes each day.  In the event that your stamp rubs or washes off, you will need to visit customer service, located at the Box Office, with a photo ID and the credit card that was used to purchase your ticket.
