Travel Packages will be fulfilled on site by Valley Music Travel. The name on VMT's will call list will match the name on the credit card used to purchase the package. There will be a table at the hotel where travel package guests pick up their festival tickets and shuttle passes, called the VMT will call or check-in table.
You will need to add your friend’s name to your room reservation so that they are able to check into the room when they arrive to the hotel. Your friend will be able to get a room key while you still have to visit us at travel package check-in to collect all festival wristbands. Please note: your name will not be in the hotel’s reservation system until much closer to the event, so you will need to wait until then to request to add your friend’s name to the hotel reservation.
As the original purchaser, you will have to request an alternate pick-up ahead of time, which will authorize a friend or family member to pick-up the package on the purchaser’s behalf and have access to the hotel guest room. Once your friend checks in, they must pick up and distribute all package elements accordingly. We recommend having your friend leave the extra wristband(s) in the room safe. Alternate pick-ups incur a $100 processing fee. Travel Packages will be fulfilled on site by Valley Music Travel, and alternate pick-ups can be processed in advance through VMT up until to 2 weeks prior to the event date. Any alternate pick-ups that need to be authorized after Friday 3/29 will need to be done on-site. In order for an on-site alternate pickup to be accommodated, the new guest will need to bring a photocopy of the original purchaser’s valid photo ID, a photocopy of the credit card used to purchase the package, as well as a note from the purchaser authorizing the new guest access to the travel package. They will need to present these items and pay the $100 fee at check-in via credit or debit card. Other payment forms will not be accepted. Please contact Festicket Support team for further assistance.
