One for Golden Circle ticket holders and one for General Standing ticket holders. There is no armband collection inside the venue. If you enter through the wrong gate you will have to go all the way back to GATE M.

6. If you bought your tickets online (print at home) please make sure you print out your E-ticket, fold it as indicated on the ticket prior to arriving at the event to avoid creasing and damaging the barcodes, and ensure that you bring your E-ticket with you to the venue as we cannot reprint E-tickets at the venue for safety and security reasons. Your E-ticket needs to be of high print quality to ensure a positive scan at the venue. Please note we cannot scan tickets off any mobile device.

7. For E-tickets purchased from bigconcerts.co.za, please review your printer settings before you print. The document must print to its actual size so that the folding lines print to the edge of the paper. If the document is fit to print to the paper size it will print the barcode too far away from the edge of the paper, and the barcode scanners at the turnstiles will be unable to read your ticket. Click here to see instructions on how to fold your E-ticket.

9. Children between the ages of 14-18 years of age who are not accompanied by a legal guardian must have the emergency contact number for their parent or legal guardian saved under the name ICE on their mobile phones, or it must be written on a small piece of paper which is to be kept inside their wallets so that medical personnel can contact this person in the event of a medical emergency.

My Lagos adventure

Yesterday I flew into one of Africa‘s busiest cities, Lagos in Nigeria. I’m here to cover the first Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (click here for more details), which takes place this coming Saturday. I’ll tell you more about my experience in the build up to my trip soon, but for now, check out some of my mobile pics so far. This city is an adventure, an experience not many will be able to enjoy, but it has been good fun so far. More on the awards, the experience and the celeb spotting to follow.
