What do I have access to with the festival wristband?

A Festival Wristband gets you into all five nights of performances at any of the official showcase venues. Also, you are welcome to attend various special events and parties to be announced. When the full schedule is released, the event will clearly indicate if wristband holders may attend. In 2015, wristband holders were welcome to attend an additional 27 events. This wristband is the best valued festival access in the nation. You definitely get a huge bang for your buck! 

Note: Wristbands do not guarantee entry if venue is at capacity. In the event of a line, conference registrants have priority access. If there is a must see band on your list, we suggest you arrive early.
