FMC FAQs - Please read first

Postby zee » Thu Dec 10, 2009 12:55 pm

Please ensure you read the information thread in General Discussion @ viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8637. Please ask non urgent questions in the thread linked above. Urgent questions should be emailed to info@thebetterfestivalgroup.co.uk.

FAQ's

I got a free ticket for 2011 from pimping my FMC Code .... how will I get this ticket?
You will hear about this in due course, so you will have to wait for this information. It is being sorted.

When I bought my 2011 Ticket there was no where to put my FMC Code?
See Tickets has a place for your FMC Code, I know I have seen it.

I am going VIP anyway so is there an alternative from a VIP upgrade, if I Pimp my code to Gold/Black Level?
Yes you can exchange your Rock Royalty Pass for additional free drinks but only if you have purchased a VIP Ticket.

If I get RR passes through the referral rewards system do I get plus 1 for myself?
RR Passes indicated are total.

Does the 2011 Free FMC Ticket for last years Gold and Black members include Early Entry?
No it doesn't. You will need to buy an Early Entry Ticket to accompany your Free Weekend Ticket.

Can everyone that used my FMC Code get access to the FMC Party?
No, every FMC Member will receive entry to the FMC Party plus ONE GUEST. Each FMC Member will receive 2 x Bronze wristbands for this event.

Collecting FMC Wristbands and Rewards?
Wristbands and rewards can be collected at the Info Tent in the arena / Bohemia. All FMC members will be given a bronze wristband + 1 allowing them into the party.

This might be useful here too:

For those of you who are new to the forum you will see a load of posts referring to FMC codes. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5296 FMC stands for Founder Members Club. This club started in 2009 for the first set of people who bought tickets really early for Sonisphere 2009. These people were issued with an FMC code which gave them access to a special party at Sonisphere 2009 and also allowed them to earn extra awards if other people used their code when purchasing their tickets.

In 2009 people who used an FMC code when booking their ticket but who were not the original FMC member were also given an invite to the FMC party. No announcement for 2010 has been made yet on rewards for people who use the codes.

Anyway if you would like to be part of this then you should obtain an FMC code from one of the many members pimping theirs out...see the post in the general discussion section for a list of people. You should then purchase your ticket from the Buy Tickets section of the main website:
http://uk.sonispherefestivals.com/buy-tickets/

At the end of the page you will be asked to enter an FMC code - at a later stage you will then be notified of any benefits associated with using an FMC code. Anyway goodluck & enjoy Sonisphere 2010

just re-read the FMC page on the main site and gold and black both get acses to the RR bar, but black has a free ticket next year..so im abit confused about what zee said

But if you are RR you would still get 4 passes reaching gold, so three for fellow pirates

i raised this when they announced the levels,
gold and black get you access to the RR/VIP area, you get 3 more passes as well ( thats 4 in total ) and 6 free drinks .
if you are already RR camping then you get 3 extra passes to give out ,so yes manda you can get 3 of the pirates in , and manda you get 10 free drinks ,cos you are already RR,
if you are black you get a free weekend camping ticket for next year which can be upgraded ifyou wish

hope this helps
