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.

How do I know if a wristband is real or counterfeit?

Fake or deactivated wristbands may look like the real thing but they will be identified by our scanning system at each venue entrance.

Only orders placed through the Eventbrite website 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 RFID chip deactivated and will not be valid.
  • For your own protection, please do not purchase Lightning in a Bottle wristbands from any third party sellers.
  • Those in possession of fake wristbands or ones reported lost or stolen will not be admitted to the festival.
  • There are no hard tickets being sold or distributed this year. If someone tries to sell or give you a paper ticket DO NOT take it. EVERYONE will need a wristband to enter the festival.
