IMPORTANT: You will need photo ID to claim your wristband!

Due to the introduction of ID scanning from 1st July into the safe night precinct of Fortitude Valley, new measures have been put in place as part of the condition that ID scanning at each venue be waived for BIGSOUND Festival attendees.

This means that each person must be present when collecting their wristband from the Oztix ticket shop. The name on your e-ticket does not necessarily need to match your ID; however, every person must show ID before being issued with a wristband.

Guests will not be issued wristbands to take from the ticket shop to give to others later, under any circumstances.
