If you purchase your tickets after May 18th, then you must pick up your wristband at WILL CALL with a voucher that will be emailed to you.

When you receive your wristband, you must download the CCMF app, activate your wristband, and add money to your account before you enter the festival.  Do not put on your wristband until you go to the festival, as you cannot remove it once you put it on.
