WHY DO I NEED A STAMP THIS YEAR?

Please be advised: In an effort to preserve Movement’s re-entry policy, attendees will get a stamp upon entering the festival each day. This new step will not affect ticket buyers, it is simply an identification method to reduce fraud and increase safety for our attendees. The stamp along with your wristband are required to re-enter the festival grounds if you leave. There will be signage on the grounds to guide you as well as increased Customer Service reps at the Box Office area ready to assist with your stamp and/or wristband inquiries.

For Customer Service assistance on-site, please make sure to bring your ID along with the credit card that was used to purchase your ticket(s). A picture on your phone or copy of your ID and credit card will also work.



WHAT IF MY STAMP WASHES AWAY OR WEARS OFF?

Please visit Customer Service located at the Box Office area and someone will be able to assist you. Make sure to have your ID and credit card that was used to purchase your ticket(s). A picture on your phone or copy of your ID and credit card will also work.



AM I ALLOWED TO EXIT AND RE-ENTER THE FESTIVAL?

Yes. If you have a weekend pass, you will be allowed to enter and exit the festival at any time during festival hours May 25-27. If you purchase a single-day pass, you will be allowed to enter and exit the festival on that day only. Please note, you will be required to properly scan your wristband out of the festival each time you exit.



I LOST OR DAMAGED MY WRISTBAND! HOW DO I GET A REPLACEMENT?

If you lose or damage your wristband, visit the Festival Box Office Tent for a replacement. There is a $20 fee for a replaced wristband and the festival is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged wristbands.



WILL THERE BE BIKE ACCOMMODATIONS AT THE FESTIVAL?

Prefer two wheels and pedals? Not only are our friends from Wheelhouse Detroit once again offering discounts to Movement wristband-holders, they will also be hosting our Bike Valet onsite again (just east of Bates, on the south side of Jefferson Ave.), where you can secure your bike for free, each day of the festival.

2019 WRISTBAND POLICY

All festival attendees, general admission, VIP or otherwise, are required at all times to wear their appropriate wristband, issued by the festival. Those failing to do so, or those failing to wear the wristband in the appropriate manner, will be denied entry to the festival grounds. Safeguard your wristband, as the festival cannot issue a new one to you, under any circumstances.

All attendees who purchase tickets will receive RFID wristbands in the mail. These wristbands are how you enter and exit the festival each day. If you have received your wristband in the mail, you do not need to go to the Box Office, proceed directly to an entrance. VIP has its own dedicated entrance at the corner of the plaza closest to Cobo Center. GA ticket holders should enter through the main entrance to the plaza.

Here’s some general information about the RFID bands:
Wristbands are activated to the person’s name who made the purchase with their credit card on the Movement site or See Tickets site.

You should not put on your wristband until you get to the festival. Wristbands cannot be removed or loosened once secured. There are limited quantities for replacements and the event organizers are not responsible for your lost, damaged or stolen wristband.

Movement Detroit wristbands are non-removable. If there is evidence that a wristband has been removed or tampered with you will not be permitted entry into the festival.

Keep the wristband away from magnetized surfaces and out of the sun to ensure it’s in top working condition when you arrive at the festival.

Wristbands purchased from a third-party source (Craigslist, Stub Hub, eBay, etc.) are not guaranteed and should not be purchased. Any issues with third party wristbands will not be validated unless the purchaser can provide evidence of a wristband purchase by way of credit card and ID of the original purchaser.

Your wristband will be scanned in when you arrive at the event and must be on your wrist at all times while inside the festival grounds. Anyone without a wristband will be escorted off the grounds by security.

Your wristband must be scanned out each time you exit the festival.

Guests picking up wristbands at Will Call or from Guest List Check-in must have a valid form of ID and the credit card they used to make the purchase (if applicable – guest list patrons only need a valid ID).

Photocopies of the purchaser’s ID and credit card used to make the purchase are valid forms of ID to pick up tickets from will call. Our staff requires the first and last name visible as well as the name and last 4 digits on the credit card made to use the purchase. The purchaser can black out all other information on the card and ID for security purposes.

If there are any issues with your wristband’s functionality at the event, there will be customer service stations located near entry gates to help reissue a band. You still need to supply the credit card and ID used to make the purchase to expedite the customer service process.

If you have any questions about your RFID band please feel free to email See Tickets: Help@SeeTickets.com



WRISTBAND SHIPPING
