The last few years, what have the wristbands been made of?

The thick plastic ones, the papery ones, or the woven fabric ones?

I like the fabric ones cause they make a good souvenir

The ones at the Phish Festival were fabric. I imagine the Coachella ones will be the same.

yes, from what I remember, the camping and vip ones were papery plastic (or plasticky paper) and the beer ones were the typical lightweight wristband that's meant to be thrown away. I've been able to get previous ones off in one piece for a good souvenir.

yea i'd think they'd have to take in consideration the sweat, beer/soda, water and all other crap you can pick up from the grounds onto you wrist band.

but hmm i wonder, would the fabric ones also pick up a stench?! yuk.

Gonna be a metal handcuff, don't stand in the sun for too long because it'll take awhile for that thing to cool down once it gets red hot

For at least the past two years the 21+ wristbands have been cheap paper, camping has been good quality plastic, press and photo were paper (which is a pain in the butt to try and keep on for 3 days), field, artist, crew, etc. were woven cloth wristbands.
