What is the TokFEST Meet & Greet Lottery?

At TokFEST we’re using a Meet & Greet Lottery to give everyone a fair chance at meeting their favourite creator.  This is the only way to attend official meet & greets, so please make sure you make your choices whilst the lottery is open!  

Lottery Opens: 4pm, Wednesday 25th August 2021

Lottery Closes: 4pm, Wednesday 1st September 2021

You will be asked to select up to 8 creators per day, in order of preference. You can make you selections at any any time before the closing date, so don’t worry if the site is slow at first! (We expect a lot of traffic initially) 

Access to the Meet & Greet lottery is included with your TokFEST ticket
You need a ToKFEST ticket to enter the lottery!

All you need to sign up is the unique number below the barcode on your ticket! 

Important Notes:

To provide the fairest experience, our lottery is drawn in order of preference.

For example:
Everyone who selects a creator first will randomly be drawn spaces for that creator’s meet & greet first. If the meet & greet fills up at this point, we will not be able to draw any further attendees.

If your first choice fills and you are unsuccessful, we will draw you for your next choices in order of preference (provided they are not full)  

Only selecting one person does not guarantee that you will meet that specific creator. Our lottery draws everyone equally based on preference to provide an equal experience for everyone

Whilst the Meet & Greet lottery is the only way to attend scheduled meet & greets, some creators may make surprise appearances on the show floor, photo areas, or merchandise spaces! We also have two stages with live Q&As and stage talks for you to enjoy, providing more ways to see your favourite creators live! 

FAQ:

Will I definitely get one of my meet & greet choices?

It's extremely likely that you will get at least one of your meet & greet choices if you have selected multiple creators. As this is a lottery system there is no guarantee that you will meet a specific creator, but you are receiving the same chance as every other attendee who has selected that creator. We will work our hardest to ensure the majority of attendees have at least one meet & greet, but this may not always be possible if only one option has been selected.

Can I enter Meet & Greets with a friend?

Yes! You are able to join up into a group with up to two other attendees. You can do this through the TokFEST Lottery website once you have registered. Once you join a group you will all share the same selections (to make different choices you must leave the group) (To keep things reasonable, we ask that groups larger than 3 divide into two groups of 2, or other variations)

Can my parent / guardian / carer accompany me?

Parents / Guardians (over 18) may receive a chaperone band to accompany attendees through the meet & greet lines. These wristbands do not enable you to take part in the meet & greet itself and are only available on a basis where genuinely required (i.e. accompanying a child) Carers with an approved carer pass will also be able to accompany the attendee they are assisting.

I have multiple tickets. Do I need to enter them all?

YES! 100% yes! If you have multiple tickets you MUST enter each of these into the lottery individually. Our system will let you automatically attach up to two tickets to your account as well (larger groups may require additional accounts to be registered)

Can I get more than one meet & greet per day?

It's possible! Depending on your selections, if there is availablity some attendees may receive multiple meet & greets for a single day. We will ONLY draw second meet & greets after every attendee has had all of their options drawn once. If Meet & Greets still have space we will then run a second draw. We may then also run a third draw, but again, this will ONLY take place once everyone eligible has had their options drawn a second time. Example: Attendee #1 receives 1 meet & greet on first draw Attendee #2 receives 1 meet & greet on their first draw and another 1 on their second draw Both attendee 1 and 2 will have been entered into the second draw, but all of attendee #1's selections would have either been full, or fully drawn on round 2.

I saw someone with more meet & greets than me.. How is this fair?!

We will ONLY draw second meet & greets after every attendee has had all of their options drawn once. If Meet & Greets still have space we will then run a second draw. We may then also run a third draw, but again, this will ONLY take place once everyone eligible has had their options drawn a second time. Example: Attendee #1 receives 1 meet & greet on first draw Attendee #2 receives 1 meet & greet on their first draw and another 1 on their second draw Both attendee 1 and 2 will have been entered into the second draw, but all of attendee #1's selections would have either been full, or fully drawn on round 2.

Can I choose the same creator on Saturday & Sunday?

Some creators may have a meet & greet on both Saturday and Sunday. You are free to choose the same creators on both days (we actually encourage this if there is a creator you REALLY want to meet, as this will maximise your chances)

Can I meet the same creator on both days?

In order to give everyone the best chance at meeting their favourite creators, you will not be able to receive the same creator on both days. (Do feel free to choose them on both days to maximise your chances though!)

When do we find out results?

Results from our lottery will be available by Monday 6th September 2021.

How do I collect my Meet & Greet Pass?

You will be sent an e-ticket to scan at the event and collect your meet & greet passes Meet & Greet tickets will be available to collect from our ticket hall on each day. Please note that you can only collect your meet & greet tickets for that day (weekend ticket holders will need to return to collect Sunday meet & greets)
