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.

My ride upgraded without telling me then joined another group and the car is full and now I am left alone with no way to get to the festival. so I (short female person,19) need a ride and group to camp with, will of course help with camping and gas and contribute CDs/cassettes for the road trip if necessary :-)
I think more ride shares will pop up but I think I have one seat in my group available but we'd be leaving out of Seattle and I don't know what the packing situation would look like yet. Keep your eyes open and let us know how it goes.
Well, that's everyone who had initially expressed interest plus a couple more. I think I'll give it one more day to see if anyone else wants to join in. I'll be randomly selecting names and themes around this time tomorrow evening.
Turns out the whole thing really popped off when Nick compared Nine Inch Nails to Mumford & Sons.
for the record. I still believe nick's online persona needs to be killed off for this comment. Nine Inch Nails/Reznor is one of the top 100 most influential bands of the 20th century and definitely ranks up there for one of the most important composers of all time.
