I’m working off site and we’ve been given EPO bands but as far as I know, they are not registered to individuals 🤷‍♀️

Do you need to swipe in and out though?

Do you have to register the EPO at first entry then? With photo ID? 

If you are working on site as my friend is yes you do... You have to show your piece of paper and a photo comes up with your mug on it then you get your band.. 

. But I don't think they will be registered to individuals.. Don't think that's possible at the moment but probably will be in the future.. 

They will probably have to have there photos on tix as well.. Which they will have to carry with them.. Basically like a normal punter..

What does EPO stand for?

The only one I’m aware of is the one that made Lance Armstrong’s bollocks fall off.

So it doesn't matter in a practical sense of they are registered to a specific person, as you won't be able to take a bunch out now to bring punters in, regardless of who had it at the start.

QR codes doesn't mean they're RFID - it's just another way of encoding a barcode that has extra functionality built in (I work in Retail and we use them a lot). The only way to tell if they're RFID is to pass one over an RFID-Reader and see if you get a response.

Either way it looks like the fake EPO-band loophole has been closed or at least made a lot harder to exploit. Which can only be for the good of the festival license. 

If they're not tied to a person twixing may still be possible though.

I recall the company I worked for logged the serial number of the band against the name. Mind you that was 10 years back.

From what I have heard they are checked at each entry and exit point, so if the actual owner hasn't left the site they can't re-enter.

There is, through Theatre & Circus camping, one of the best things about pitching up there!

Does this work for normal punters? Or does it require a special wristband?

also what was that about worthy view? Does a standard worthy view pass look like an epo band or did I misunderstand

There are two entrances/exits to navigate, very strictly stewarded. You'll either need to be a T&C performer, worker or camper (you get a lanyard to indicate which) or you'll need a specific/general pass to get you through most/all areas. An EPO band alone won't get you through.

EPO bands themselves are not registered to individuals.. All the checking is so that they can ensure that the bands themselves go to the right people

bet they are, this year. I know for a fact that at least some of the non-punter wristbands are traceable back to an individual this year but weren't last time. I can't really see why they'd only do some of them.

Neil is right, I have seen staff/performer tickets that entitle you to EPO's and they have personal details on them. However, I'd say that just for the collection of the EPO, once in use the QR system is simple, its just " is the band suppose to be in or out?" 

 

As far as I'm aware.
