We wish! No, the locals do not get free tickets, the only benefit we get is that we can purchase tickets from multiple locations within Reading itself if we are unable to get a ticket online when released.



I do some work for Festival Republic during the build up and festival weekend, plus staff on their offical forums
that must be the best job in the world !

He's not wrong there.

Any idea what the wristband colours will be this year? :awesome:

I say colours because there's the Over 18 band and Under 18 band.

I would have thought they were separate, other festivals i've been to recently have had separate colours for over 18's and U18's.

The wristband colour is kept secret to try and reduce the chances of fake copies being made beforehand.

As far as i'm aware, the 18+ wristband will be an optional second wristband you wear with your main weekend/day one.

They're optional extra wristbands to prove that you are over the age of 18. The theory is that it means you don't have to carry your ID everywhere as the bar staff see your wristband and automatically know you're 18. I asked Reue a few posts up and he thinks that it's an extra band along with the main one you get at the entrances.

Not much use for me as my ID is in my wallet which is with me at all times anyway, but I guess it'll save me getting it out everytime I go to the bar.

Didn't they originally have problems with it because it's the law to i.d people at the actual bar rather than at the entrance (as i've found in some clubs and things also) so there'd be no point having wristbands. Wonder how they got round this, or if i'm just making this up

Well in clubs I've been to, if there are bouncers on the door checking ID, they don't ID you at the bar.

Also at the Rhythms Of The World festival I got an Over 18 wristband and didn't get ID'd at the bar.

Yeah the whole ID wristband thing is used in many places. Mainly in local bar gigs etc is where I have come across them, and there aren't many bars these days willing to risk being prosecuted for under-age drinking.
