Wristband Exchange is in the Conference Centre on Leopold Grove. We're open for 6 hours on Wednesday! So if you can get your wristband early then you'll be able to go straight in to the venue on Thursday (choice of 2 entrances - see below).

To help with queues please have your tickets ready. You can print them out. You can screenshot them. You can make sure your phone is charged! It will make scanning quicker. Your ticket will be scanned by security. A valid ticket will be allowed to join the queue for the wristbanders. Keep your ticket out and show your wristbander, they will give you the appropriate wristband.

BAG SEARCH - bags will be searched on entry to the building. Last year people were turning up with their suitcases getting wristbands prior to checking in to their B&Bs. Please don't do this! It takes time to search bags and adds to the queuing time.

LATE ARRIVALS - if you arrive after wristband exchange closes, head to the Box Office on Victoria St


Wednesday 1pm to 7pm
Thursday 11am to 10.30pm
Friday midday to 10.30pm
Saturday midday to 10.30pm
Sunday midday to 10pm

The Rebellion Box office is located at the Victoria St entrance (opposite Bella Italia). Do not confuse this with the Winter Gardens sign over the door saying BOX OFFICE in Church St (opposite the Church). This is not used for any General Admission or ticket sales over the weekend.

TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR! - You can come to our BOX OFFICE in Victoria St and buy weekend and day tickets for this years event on the door. You will be wristbanded when you buy your ticket and (from Thursday) let straight in to the venue. No need to queue at Wristband exchange!

2024 EARLY BIRD tickets can also be purchased at the Box Office.

Cash and Card accepted.

Ticket sales finish when the box office closes but it is staffed for late arrivals and information.


ENTRY - Via the Conference Centre on LEOPOLD GROVE

With no R-FEST this year, we are re-opening the entry / exit opposite Bella Italia. You can enter here all weekend but ONLY ONCE YOU HAVE BEEN WRISTBANDED. No wristband, no entry to the festival! You can only enter here without a wristband to go to the BOX OFFICE to buy tickets for this year (where you will be wristbanded) or Early Bird tickets for next year.
