this thread reminds me of my best friend judit's cousin matti's scheme at a hungarian festival - Sziget. the festival only costs £60 anyway, for 7 days, and headlining was radiohead, franz ferdinand, scissor sisters, prodigy, placebo and many others on the smaller stages, but some people are cheap skates and matti's scheme really worked. the sziget wrist bands were yellow, so he ordered some yellow wrist bands off the internet (it was cheaper to get some leftovers from some kind of trucking festival so he did but in theory he could have ordered wristbands with sziget written on them). anyway he would take me/judit/other volunteer and clip off the black ring that held the bracelet together off, and replace our wrist band with one of the fakes so that from a distance it wasnt totally obvious we didnt have proper wrist bands.
then he would go out of the festival, find the person he wanted to sneak in, put the real wrist band on them (by replacing the black ring he had clipped off) and get them in, give them a fake and give us our wrist band back. unfortunatley, many times this didnt exactly go to plan and judit and i had to hang about for ages waiting to meet him so he would give us our wrist bands back. he made a shit load of money and we never got anything in return. he's a very clever guy though.

one of matti's friends actually got in with just the fake wrist band cos the guards were just checking the black rings were on and didnt look at the design in detail.

it's hard enough remembering my opinions
without remembering my reasons for them
