well, the picture/drawing on the linked page def. looks like the cloth bands from last year. the little black part is the locking slider, which if you try to pull it to loosen the band is supposed to shred said wristband.

Can you put a RFID chip in a cloth wristband?

rage patton

But those didn't have to get scanned...

JustSteve
03-10-2011, 08:33 PM
i'm sure a chip can be sewn into them.

just to reiterate, though, i have no idea if cloth is being used. just saying the pic on the page looks like one and they really seem to be the only way to have a virtually tamper proof wristband.

rage patton

You are right. It does look like a cloth wristband. I am not expecting to get one though. If we do, I will be plesantly surprised.

I really wouldn't mind going to Stagecoach.. I wouldn't like the music but I've heard the partying is great. I was planning on working there if they did the W.E.T volunteer thing again this year. guess not.

choice cat
03-10-2011, 09:01 PM
Because I have friends that go every year and they all rant and rave about how great a weekend it is. I wouldn't pay to go, but if I happened to be there working off my Coachella ticket I think it could be a cool experience.

I can have a party home with people and music of my choice any other weekend of the year, why not go for a new experience.

You know what, most the people i have encountered at StageCoach are very likable. They are very generous with their food and booze. Good vibes. Musically it is still more miss for me, but i have seen and heard some good stuff.

I wonder how many insufferable idiots will get to Indio without their wristbands on, get in line at the checkpoint, get to the officer checking wristbands and then make everyone behind them wait while they fumble for their wristbands....

What is wrong with you? Do you dummies not realize that having a police check point ensure that everyone has their wrist bands on doesn't mean they are going to be strip searching you or your car? Fucking wait until you get past the police check point to crack open your beers.

Did you attend in 2010? If you didn't, then you would not understand why they are going to such measures this year. To me, these don't seem extreme at all.

I wonder what kind of advanced technology this wristband has. What would be awesome is if they put in a verification of age so it works for the beer garden too. Way worse than sitting in your car with a bunch of other party people for a wristband is waiting at the festival with music going on to get a beer wristband.

Hey GV, nice idea, eh?!
