We’re extremely happy with the success of using RFID technology to speed up the process of getting into the festival so we’re using it again this year. Every wristband will be scanned as you enter, and will need to remain on your wrist for the duration of the event. Basically, it will serve as your LIB passport in, around and out of the festival.
Your wristband will take the place of a traditional ticket, and will be shipped to you in advance of the event. Full weekend orders began shipping on April 16, 2015. 2 Day passes begin shipping after May 7th. Once shipments have begun, changes to an order's shipping address can no longer be processed.
All orders placed after May 5th, will be held at will call.
To claim your wristbands you will need to visit the box office on the weekend of the event.
Entrance into LIB
- Everyone in your vehicle must have a wristband properly applied on their RIGHT wrist prior to arriving. You will not be allowed onto the festival entrance road without your wristband properly applied on your wrist.
- Wristbands are required at all times on festival grounds. You will be subject to ejection with no refund if you take off or tamper with your wristband for any reason. If you have an issue with your wristband please immediately report to security or customer service.
- Please do not remove the excess portion of the wristband or tamper with your wristband in any way. Do not cut it, burn it, stretch it or fold it. Altered wristbands will be invalid and any person in possession of an altered wristband will be charged a replacement fee or may be ejected from the festival site.
- Only orders placed through the LIB website are guaranteed to be authentic. Only wristbands that are received from the official Lightning in a Bottle Festival are guaranteed to be authentic. We do not want any of our fans to be scammed.
Please Be Aware
- We are not responsible for any counterfeit tickets or wristbands.
- In addition, any wristbands reported lost or stolen will have their chip deactivated and will not be valid.
- For your own protection, please do not purchase LIB wristbands from any third party sellers. Fake or deactivated wristbands may look like the real thing but they will be identified by our scanning system at each venue entrance.
- Those in possession of fake wristbands – or ones reported lost or stolen – will not be admitted to the festival.
