Moogfest logistics

Info from the official site:

Is Moogfest 2010 an all-ages festival?
Yes, patrons of all ages are welcome. Stella Blue is our only venue that is 18+ but all of our other venues are all ages.  Tickets will be required for patrons of age 2 or older. If you do bring the little ones, we suggest earplugs and an afternoon nap.

Where do I go to redeem my day ticket or festival pass?
Each ticket holder will be required to exchange his or her ticket for a credential upon arriving at the festival. Credentialing for Weekend Pass and Day Ticket holders will take place in the Exhibition Hall (entrance located on Hiawassee Street) of the Asheville Civic Center. Additionally, this will be the only entrance into the Asheville Civic Center and Thomas Wolfe Auditorium throughout the festival. … Trust us, it will be a smooth and easy process.

Will I be able to see every show?
This is a festival and some shows will be going simultaneously, so there might be some difficult choices. Priority access will be given to VIP pass holders and admittance will be given on a first come, first serve basis. Once a venue reaches capacity, we will move to a one-in, one-out policy. There will be several concert options at any given moment during the festival weekend.

Will alcohol be available at each event?
Venues that traditionally sell alcohol will be making it available for purchase during the festival; this includes the Asheville Civic Center, Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, The Orange Peel and the Moogaplex. Photo identification and wrist-banding are required to purchase alcohol.  Please be aware that the city of Asheville does not allow open containers outside. It’s Ashevegas, but it ain’t Vegas. Please be sure to finish your beverages before exiting of any of our venues.

Can I bring a camera?
Disposable and small digital photography will be allowed, but anything with a removable lens is not permitted. Audio and video recording devices are prohibited. Additionally please be respectful of other patrons and the artists when using your camera and try not to use your flash.

What can I bring and what is prohibited?
What’s acceptable: Small backpack or purse, small umbrella, camera with non-removable lens. Please remember everyone and his or her backpack/purse is subject to search.

What’s prohibited: Drugs, controlled substances, alcohol, outside food or drink (including sealed water bottles), weapons, firearms, glowsticks, laser pointers, large frame backpacks, video recording equipment, tri-pods, audio recording equipment, chairs, coolers, contraband, unauthorized merchandise and fireworks. Any person attempting to enter the venues with any of the item(s) above will be refused access, or at the venue’s discretion, allowed to give up the prohibited item(s) before entry. Confiscated items will be destroyed or given away at the venue’s discretion.

Will there be in and out privileges at each show?
Yes, all credentialed patrons will be allowed to free flow from show to show. Due to capacity restrictions, if you leave a show that is at capacity, you may have to wait in line to get back in.

Will I be searched coming in to each show?
All patrons are subject to search upon entry or re-entry into every show.
