Tampering with your wristband may deem it void and result in you being removed from the festival or required to purchase a new ticket.
There will be no automatic right of re-admission during the Festival should the wristband become lost, stolen, destroyed or damaged and you unconditionally accept the risk of damage to, loss of and/or theft of your band. Your wristband is not redeemable for cash.
