What is it?

Short answer: it is both a discount wristband and a priority pass which is highly recommended (and sometimes essential) if you plan to visit more than one ticketed event. It only costs 10 €.

Detailed answer:

  • Elegant and comfortable soft-touch wristband 
  • It costs 10 € but it’s worth much more in discounts. See benefits in the yellow box on this page.
  • It gives priority access both at the door and online, as most popular events have a very reduced Non-VIP quota. For example, the spa and some trips are basically VIP-exclusive events, because of the many VIP tickets rolled over tickets from 2020. 
  • This item is also a sort of a donation to the bear week. Our organizing staff is mostly paid from this income. So thank you for adding one wristband to your order!

How does it Work?

  1. Please make sure you add your VIP wristband to the shopping cart at the online shop (one per person). Wristbands will be available at the same time than the rest of the items. If you booked one in 2020, you don’t need to get a new one.
  2. Now book VIP tickets at the online shop. If you don’t plan to buy a VIP wristband, you must buy Non-VIP tickets only (with no discount at all).
  3. Once in Gran Canaria, please collect your wristband (read blue box on the page) by giving your name at a collection point. Just in case, please locate the order receipt we emailed you on your mobile phone or printed in paper.
  4. Please show both items (wristband and ticket) when entering the ticketed event. A VIP ticket shown with no VIP wristband will force us to ask for the price difference (or ask you to buy a VIP wristband on-site, if stock lasts). This will unnecessarily delay your entry (and everyone else’s).
  5. If you want to enjoy VIP prices at any other partner venue, just show the wristband to the staff
There should be VIP wristbands for everyone booking online. You can also buy a wristband in person once here, but only while stock lasts.

VIP benefits:

  • Priority access to new online bookings and at the door. Some events with restricted capacity and lots of rolled-over tickets from 2020, will be difficult to access without a VIP wristband.

  • 5 € discount on Bear Brunch and Bear Tantra Workshop
  • 3€ discount on all pool parties

  • 10% discount on drinks at Mardi Gras bar
  • 1 € discount at official bear nights at Bunker, Reds, Zoo and Strong Construction
  • Special VIP promos at Noxon
  • Free official bag with some goodies while stock lasts
