To get through registration as quickly as possible, each attendee needs to bring a photo ID and/or their QR Code either printed out or on their phone. (QR Codes can be found in the email from Tixr that the order holder receives when they purchase tickets.) Please note that the name on the photo ID must match the first and last name you used during registration. If you did not register with your legal name, please review our FAQ for instructions for how to modify your name.

Attendees may ONLY pick up their own credentials; credentials cannot be redeemed on behalf of an attendee that is not present. Each attendee will receive a badge and wristband that must be worn throughout the entire event. Wristbands do not loosen once they have been put on, and damaged or cut wristbands will not be honored and will need to be replaced. Replacement badges and/or wristbands are each subject to a $20 fee.


You will need your badge and your RFID wristband to enter VidCon. BOTH pieces MUST be worn at all times to gain access to and remain in the venue. If at any time you are found inside the venue without both, you may be asked to leave the event.

  • Scan your wristband every time you enter the event and every time you exit.
  • Only wristbands purchased from the official event website and ticketing partners are valid. Do not purchase wristbands from third parties.
  • Wristbands are non-transferable and non-exchangeable.
  • Wristbands will be treated as void if tampered with; do not cut or try to remove your wristband.
  • Wristbands do not loosen once tightened so don’t pull your wristband too tight!
  • Lost, damaged, or stolen wristbands will be deactivated. Replacement badges and wristbands are subject to a $20 replacement fee each and you must show photo ID and/or proof of purchase to get a replacement.
  • Your wristband should remain on your wrist throughout the event. Do not remove your wristband until all official programming is over and you have exited the venue.


Tickets will be available for purchase on site. Please proceed to Registration in BCC Pratt Street Lobby and look for the ticket sales booth. Only debit and credit cards are accepted (Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay are not accepted). In order to limit person-to-person contact and the amount of time spent in line, we urge you to consider purchasing your ticket online before the event. Tickets can also be purchased online throughout the event.


If you pre-ordered merch, stop by the VidCon Merch Booth in the Expo Hall to pick up your VidCon hoodies, t-shirts, and posters. To redeem your pre-ordered merch, you will need to bring your merch QR code to the booth. The booth will be open during all Expo Hall hours, so you have all weekend to claim your items.

Please note: We will not ship the merch to you. You must claim it at the event.
