Wristband exchange

When exchanging a wristband, a two-day basic ticket is exchanged to a wristband and all PLUS tickets are exchanged to a wristband and pass. The ticket must be changed to a wristband in person, as the wristband is placed directly on the wrist of the ticket holder so that they are fastened correctly and possible abuses are avoided. Loose wristbands are not given to anyone.

One-day basic tickets won’t be exchanged to wristbands, they will be read at the gates. With a one-day ticket you can enter the festival area only once.

Once you have the wristband, you can leave the area and come back as many times as you like by showing the wristband at the gate. Only an intact wristband entitles you to enter.

If you have a PLUS ticket that will be exchanged to a wristband and a pass, please take good care of both! Entry requires you to have both an intact wristband and pass.

Accessibility

A customer can bring an assistant with them free of charge. The assistant policy applies to anyone with reduced mobility and needs an assistant for daily activities. If the customer has a two-day ticket or a PLUS-ticket, the ticket is exchanged to wristbands. The assistant needs to come to the wristband exchange at the same time to collect their wristband. We recommend that you carry a document with you that shows your need for an assistant, such as an assistant card, an EU Disability Card with an A symbol or a Visual Impairment Card.

There is an accessible viewing platform in the festival area with a view of the stage. The customer's assistant can accompany the assisted person on the platform when there is enough space.

Accessible toilets are located near the viewing platform and at the first aid station.

The customer has the right to bring the ancillaries, medicines and snacks they need for health reasons to the festival area. If you are unsure whether something is permitted or prohibited, you can inquire about it in advance by e-mail at: teemu.herva(at)staffmax.fi

The Toilet Card

We want to promote the accessibility of our event by taking into account our customers who use the Toilet Card. At Tuhdimmat Tahdit, the Toilet Card is valid in all toilets in the festival area (excluding the backstage area).

We also hope that customers who use the Toilet Card will be taken into account by, for example, letting them go to the front of the toilet queue. The card holder has a health reason that requires immediate use of the toilet. The Toilet Card can be a physical card or a mobile version on the phone.

Principles for a safer space

– Everyone is equally valuable to us. If you discriminate against others or treat others with disrespect, you may be removed from the event.
– Don’t assume and don’t name-call. You cannot assume, for example, another person's gender, sexuality, ability, wealth or background by looking at them.
– Respect people's integrity. You must not touch others without their permission. Sexual harassment is a crime and we have zero tolerance for it in our facilities.
– Violent behavior leads to removal from the event. There may be criminal penalties for inappropriate behaviour.
– Apologize if you have hurt others intentionally or unintentionally.
– If you experience discrimination, threats, harassment or see someone behaving dangerously, contact the staff. We promise to intervene and help you get out of the distressing situation safely.
– Our staff and performers have the same rights and obligations as our guests. They are here for you - respect their privacy as well, but don't hesitate to ask for help if needed.
