After successfully placing and paying for your order you will be emailed a “purchase confirmation”, this is NOT your ticket. E-ticket will be sent subsequently by Bear Stone Festival.
Ticket(s) cannot be exchanged, transferred or resold. If this ticket(s) is re-sold or transferred for profit or commercial gain by anyone other than Bear Stone Festival, it will become void and the holder may be refused entry or removed from the site.
Upon arrival at the festival your e-tickets are only valid in combination with valid ID / passport. Your ID / Passport must match the name on your e-ticket. We do not accept a written mandate to transfer personalised tickets.
