Reminisce does have a box office to collect tickets but it's more of a last resort if you can't get an E-ticket or get the ticket mailed to you. DO NOT rely on WIFI connection.

Yes. But if you cannot download your ticket on the event day, you cannot enter the festival site. Please avoid this at all costs by downloading your ticket prior to the event day.
  What happens if one of my deposit scheme payments declines?
If your payment is declined or you do not have enough funds in your account then you will need to contact Ticket Quarter to bring the account up to date. Your ticket will be held but will not be posted to you until you have paid the full amount. Please ensure you contact Ticket Quarter to advise of any changes to your card details to avoid this happening e.g. account closure or change of card number/expiry date.
