Express Entry is where for the first 4 hours of the event we open the gates for Prepaid Pass holders only. This allows all our gate staff to focus on processing as many tickets as we can without cash sales slowing us down. It’s as simple as scanning your barcodes and giving you your relevant wrist bands – if you upgraded to Premium Camping, we’ll also put a sticker on your windscreen. This system worked so well in 2015 & 2016 that, an hour and a half after opening, we didn’t have a queue.
All or nothing
For this to work well, everyone in your vehicle must have a Prepaid Pass (well, everyone over 12 years old – children under that age get FREE entry). If one person (or more) don’t have a Prepaid Pass and need to purchase a ticket, they’ll have to wait until noon Friday.
Cash gate sales will not open until 12pm Friday, where you can buy a Weekend Pass, or Day pass. See ticket prices.
