Thread: I.D. checks

  1. #1

    Default I.D. checks

    can anyone share some insight on how thoroughly/intensely I.D.s are checked to go into the camping area? i'll be a few days shy of 18 when the festival begins and am the only one underage in my group of friends...

    take one of your friends IDs that looks kinda similar to you and you'll be fine.

    All depends on the security guard - have a back up plan because there is absolutely no assurance this will work.

    ive camped twice and i THINK i got carded once
    but you can just walk in, really almost no one checks
    specially if it doesnt sell out, everyone will be relaxed
    as predicted by nostradamus

    The security guards do not check your ID, the Camping Volunteers (who give you a wristband) check your ID.

    not very well at all from past experiences

    if you LOOK under 18 chances are they will ask you for it. its not hard to borrow a friends i.d. just ask. they would not take it from you or anything. and even if they do deny you entry just find someone in line and ask them if they could help you by handing you their i.d. after they get in. you will be fine, iam 22 and have not even brought my i.d. with me all the times i have gone and have never been asked.

    I just want to know what moths have to do with you being of age or not. Why is it up to moths?

    Can I use butterflies instead? Will they confiscate the butterflies if I try to bring them through security? I couldn't find it in the FAQ.

    For the last two years, there's been a pretty big Gogol moth infestation. It looks like it's cleared up, but you can never be certain until you're there.

    Well, it was really stupid of you to buy camping passes in the first place. I guess at this point all you can do is give it a try. Also, if you do get caught using a fake ID you won't go to jail, you just won't be allowed to get in and the card will most likely be confiscated.

    im using my buddys id and he look exactly like me.
    but, the id is his permit (he doesn't have a drivers liscence yet) so it is a piece of paper. not a card. do u think that will be a problem?

    On a similar note. In 07 I used a bald canadian guy's passport to get my alcohol wristband.. I'm not bald, and I am not even remotely canadian.
