Okay - phew, thank you. It's actually my son who is going, he pulled a complete bonehead move and put it on yesterday (on his left wrist), and can't take it off (of course). The wristbands are not replaceable, so now he has to wear it for like a month till the festival! That's why I was asking about the waterproof thing too, he'll be showering so I hope it wont malfunction or anything before the concert.
wristbands technically are replaceable. They'll have plenty of extra at the will call.
Brand new to this site, sorry if this has been asked a billion times - but what is the deal with the 'right wrist only' for the wristband? Would someone not be allowed entry if it is on the left wrist? Also - I'm assuming the wristband is waterproof, but is it like 'shower every day' waterproof, or 'fine in a light rain' waterproof??
It has to do with crowd control and swiping issues. All the wrist swiping is done from the right side of your body. All security has to do to make sure you're in the right place is look at your right wrist.
For the record I've seen people with the bands on the left wrist at all kinds of music festivals. It's more a guideline then a rule. But they might ask you to get a new wristband if you put yours on wrong.
