Volunteer Duties: Gate B

  1. Gate B access is only for people who already have wrist bands on! If a patron does not have their wrist band yet please tell them to go to the main gate just down the dyke.
  2. For any non festival patrons the Dyke behind you along the river is CLOSED. Festival patrons only past that point. Public can walk down the dyke to the main entrance and cut through the parking lot to get back on the river side of the Dyke there. (So the Dyke is closed to the public from Gate B to the Security Access Point in the Parking lot). If public is causing problems about that you have a professional security guard with you at the gate to help or radio a festival organizer to help (Kevin, Jeni or Jen).
  3. Festival rules will be posted at each gate. Glass, Alcohol or other non-factory sealed beverage containers, dogs, drugs and weapons will not be permitted at the festival. Patrons are encouraged to bring an empty, reusable water bottle to refill on the festival grounds.
  4. Cut off or broken wrist bands are NOT ALLOWED entry!
  5. One person should ensure that each patron passing through the gate has the appropriate coloured wrist band FASTENED to their wrist, regardless of how many times they’ve been through the gate. Patrons are told at the ticket booth that they must keep the wrist band on the entire festival.
  6. If patrons have a backpack, bag or large purse please instruct them to go to the professional security guard present at the gate. They will ask each patron to open any bag, purse, or baby buggy so that the gate attendant can check for any banned items (see above). OR, if a bag is difficult to check visually, the PATRON is required to empty their own bag onto a table. You are not required or permitted to manually search a patron or their belongings.
  7. Any alcohol, glass, unsealed beverages etc. must be disposed of immediately in a garbage can AT the gate. The patron is not permitted to finish his “drink” while standing at the gate. Consuming alcohol in a public place is against the law.
  8. If there are any disputes or conflicts, you have a professional security person with you and/or get one of the festival organizers by radio as soon as possible.
  9. Ticket sales will end at 10 p.m. each night. People without tickets will not be permitted to enter the festival after that time.
