The person who wants to change their ticket to a wristband must be present at the changing point – the wristband is placed on a wrist by our staff. The wristband is personal, and it can’t be changed to another person later. 


Be prepared to present an identity card when changing your ticket – the festival’s age limit is 18. Tickets are not personal, so it doesn’t matter whose name is on the ticket.
