EVERYONE STAYING AT THE HOLIDAY INN SHOULD KNOW: ALL HOTEL ATTENDEES WILL BE GIVEN WRISTBANDS UPON CHECK IN. THESE WRISTBANDS MUST BE WORN ALL WEEKEND. FOUR (4) WRISTBANDS MAXIMUM PER ROOM.

The Holiday Inn has to account for a number of extra features, one of which will be extra hired security who will patrol the hotel throughout The Fest 20. If they find people roaming the hotel after 10pm without a Holiday Inn wristband on, they will be forced to escort you out. This is to prevent the massive number of non-hotel attendees who were at the hotel many years ago during Fest, stirring up trouble late at night. Since we have started this rule, it has made the hotel much cooler and your stay much more of a private FEST party! You are paying good money to stay here so you would like to enjoy it right?
