Here’s how the pass works:
The pass is non-transferrable and each time you enter for free, your ID will be checked against the name on your pass at the time of entry. No one likes identity theft.

Your laminate is good for the admission of one (1) person only. That’s you. Bring friends with you and feel superior knowing that we love you more.

Take care of your laminate. We want you to respect this most personal of relationship gifting. We understand that accidents happen – heck, we’ve seen most of em with our own eyes. Replacement laminates will be available one time only and comes with a $15 fee. We can’t let you back in our good graces for free – people would talk.

If a laminate is found to be shared or falsely used, it may be revoked immediately and without refund. This is a friendship based on trust – you can trust us to keep bringing the best music to Chicago so you’ll want hang out with us as much as possible and we want to trust you to keep this special bond between just us.
