Hey I found this chart of all the different types of bands. Does anyone know what privileges go with each band? Mainstage means you can go sidestage on the two larger stages right? and sidestage means you can go side stage on the three smaller stages, but not the two larger ones. Do mainstage bands get you sidestage on the smaller stages too? which bands get you into vip? which bands get you food? is there a beer band?

aryln, you do realize that that chart and those wristbands - other than the VIP one, I think - are for people working at the festival, right?

They don't have the wristband to get into the beer gardens on that chart because the beer wristband - which is for the regular festival goer - doesn't get you into the backstage areas. You get a beer wristband by waiting in a line to show someone an ID to prove you are 21 or older.

i found it by doing a google image search for "coachella wristbands" and I think that only the vendor and crew bracelets are for people working at the festival. the food bracelet is for free food, the main and side stage bracelets i believe are given to artists and their friends who play on those stages, vip passes are bought, and photo, aa photo, film crew and press i'm not sure about. i mean press is obviously press, but i was under the impression you had to be press to get a photo pass

there is no free food bracelet, probably food vendors

yeah food vendors. the vendor bracelet is for the other vendor people (clothing, etc.)

But where exactly would security use it? At which checkpoint? There has to be a lot of checkpoints all over the fields, and certain wristband classes are guaranteed entry to this particular location, while others are not.

Strange how VIPs are allowed access to this checkpoint, but not the media. I know it isn't the VIP area by the main stage because I saw countless media people there.

Security at every entrance to the festival had those charts. I remember looking at one last year at the camping entrance.

On the topic of coachella wristbands, are they plasticky wristbands or the more fabric type wristbands you get at european festivals? I hate wearing wristbands enough as it is, but plastic ones will be torture!

Unless are going to be a "VIP" you really don't need to worry about the wristbands. The beer garden ones are the flimsy paper ones. The artists and their friends got the cloth ones that let you into where their trailers were. The ones that just get you into the VIP area were the annoying plastic ones. At least thats how it was last year. The 1st year they were sticky passes and laminates. Goldenvoice definitly leaned their lesson with that one!

I received a press & photo pass this year. Does anyone know if you can request other passes once you get there such as food?

Thanks.
