If you stay in a hotel or apartment, please take a proof of your accommodation with you to the wristband office. If you stay in a hotel or apartment and you do not have proof of accommodation with you, you will need to pay garbage deposit. …But don’t worry, you have a whole week time to verify that you are not staying at the festival camp. With the verification, you’ll get your money back and you won’t need to return full garbage bags.
