STRICT FANCY DRESS CODE!!! NO COSTUME NO ENTRY!!!
The doors will be closed at 7pm to prepare the indoor stage for renegade. Our classy as F*&% "Door Bitches" will keep you in check and literally will not let you in without a fancy costume of some sort. They will also be searching out for those to nominate for the 'Best Dressed' Prize, and giving out Jellyshots to those in character as well as costume. Those nominated for 'best dressed' get first entry and the best seats.
SO the question on everybody's lips is "When do we get to cash in on the awesome PRIZES!?"
Well, the Renegade Raffle is when! Raffle tickets will be onsale throughout the festival ($2 per ticket or 3 for $5), and a ticket will be drawn between each act (or whenever Jamie feels like it).
