If you have Playlist tickets and want to make sure you see your favorite personality for his or her official Meetup, make sure you register. In an effort to ease the length of meet-and-great lines and make the entire celebrity autograph and selfie experience more manageable and enjoyable for creators and fans alike, Playlist has introduced a shiny new way to handle Meetups. Here’s the short of it:
- Playlist Live will now group multiple creators together for meetups.
- You will pre-register for meetups online at a date to be announced in October. If you have a Line Pass, don’t worry — your selection date will be prior to Standard Pass holders.
- You will login with your order number and email.
- You will then select a meetup group for Saturday and a meetup group for Sunday. Selection is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
- Once registered, you are confirmed to meet those creators at the event. You will receive a confirmation email of your selection.
- When you pick up your badge at registration, you will receive a wristband for each meetup. Playlist Live staff will put them on you. These will get you into your designated meetup on Saturday and Sunday.
- At your designated time each day, head to your selected meetup and ENJOY!
