    I can't wait until a line is formed by everyone who has the wristband on their left hand that needs to have it fixed.

    My thoughts exactly. Cloth wristbands are the bomb. I don't understand why Coachella insists on using shitty plastic ones.

    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.

    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.
