Opening hours of counters where tickets will be exchanged for ID wristbands:

We fixed an improvement for this year that can help us to eliminate long queues after gates opening. Festival tickets will no longer be exchanged for wristbands at the entrance to the amphitheater but you'll be able to get your bracelets at the designated places (containers with six windows / counters) that will be placed just next to ticket office. You can get you wristband before the start of the festival and when the gates are open for the show you can simply just slip in :o)
