  • No outside liquids are allowed at any event.  No exceptions.
  • Proper attire is required at all events and the hotel.  You must cover your naughty parts.  No nudity and no exposed bottoms allowed.  Bare jockstraps and the like do not meet this requirement.  This will be strictly enforced, so please dress appropriately.  We want everyone to feel comfortable and safe.
  • Any behavior we deem inappropriate will result in immediate ejection from an event or the hotel.  In all common spaces of the hotel and at all events of the weekend, you are considered in public and standards will be such enforced.
  • There is no coat or “clothes” check at any event.  We’re in store for a very hot weekend, so please dress as you would like to remain for the duration of the party.

Important Ticketing Highlights

  • Weekend Pass and Prime Pass holders must present an active RFID armband for entry for the events their pass includes and has not already been scanned for that event.  No paper or mobile tickets will be accepted for pass holders for the events their pass includes.
  • Weekend Pass and Prime Pass holders that do not have an armband may retrieve one at any event of the weekend by presenting a valid, government-issued photo-ID matching the original name on the pass order.  No exceptions.
  • Prime Pass armbands only include the three night events.  They are not valid for entry to the pool party or tea dance.  Weekend Pass bands include all events.
  • Individual ticket holders must present a valid QR code ticket for entry that has not been scanned for that event.  Purple staff will not be able to lookup your ticket at the door, so please ensure you have your tickets ready.
