Q. Will there be security on site?
A. There will be a significant security presence on site at all times as well as members of An Garda Siochana. Illegal behaviour will not be tolerated and you will be removed from site and possibly arrested. Security at INDIE17 will be very strict during bag search and entry. This is done for your safety and to maintain a prevention rather than cure system. Please be patient when entering the site, its for your benefit in the long run.
Q. I bought a VIP Upgrade, where do I go?
A. You are entitled to queue skip on arrival so look for this and take advantage of it! The VIP Campsite is adjacent to Gate 1(Camping Car Park Gate) but is also just a short 3-4 minute walk from Gate 2 if you do get dropped off. Once you are through the initial search and wristband, you can head straight to VIP camping and set up your tent. The Indie garden will be open in the Arena until midnight daily.
