The ticket validation process has now been moved away from the side of the entrance dirt road to the Underberg Country Club. The Club is on the road through Underberg and does not require any detours. There is ample flat parking, a nice hall and a bar for people to get their tickets scanned. The Red Bull wings crew will also be on site to help with some much needed Red Bull. All you need is your valid ticket and barcode which will be scanned and validated – once validated you will be issued your access armband which will be your access to the site. At the gates to the festival, you will then have your armband checked and car searched for glass, otherwise entrance will be quick and easy. You do not need to bring your ID with to the festival.
