Additionally such document will allow to verify the age of persons entitled to enter the festival area without carer (more info in the Terms and Conditions of the Open’er Festival). When it comes to the children with discount ticket or entitled to free admission to the festival area, legal carers or a parents are asked to take with them a document that will certify the child’s age.
