Thread: HELP! Flew to LA, but left Coachella wristbands at home.

  1. #1

    Default HELP! Flew to LA, but left Coachella wristbands at home.

    I just flew into LA from Houston and totally forgot my wristbands at home. Unbelievable.

    Does anyone know if I'll be able to goto Will Call and show them my Ticketmaster invoice to get new wristbands? Or am I outta luck?

    Please any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I would def go! They can deactivate your old ones and give you new ones~ Lote of people who didnt get there have had to do that. I wouldnt come this far and not try!!

    I'd be surprised if they bought your story at Will Call. Otherwise every scalper out there would "lose" their wristbands, show up with the invoice and "find" a new one.

    I doubt the wristbands are tied to a database and matched to a unique record individually upon entry to see if it's already been scanned or not.

    The fact that they're checking loose wristbands upon entry, and taking those that are loose and replacing them with new ones that they personally tighten...is pretty good evidence that they're just checked as valid or invalid, and there would be no way to "deactivate" the old one.

    It's worth a shot to try, but if they accept "lost wristband" as valid excuse and give out a new one to everyone that claims that, it's a gigantic hole in their security and very easy opportunity for scalpers.

    Good luck anyway, and let us know what they say.

    But you remembered your airline tickets?

    Who uses airline tickets (unless it's some weird credit/changed ticket/voucher)?

    Even though the word "would've" sounds like "would of", it is actually a contraction of the words "would" and "have".

    MJA, you sly dog, you! If I would've known you were going to Coachella after all, I wouldn't have had that dumb-ass look on my face when you said hello to Pete and I after being Shplongled!

    Dont wait t ill you get out there to find out.

    Call Front gate tickets NOW and explain the situation and find out what you can do.

    888.512.SHOW.

    The wristbands are all tied to each persons acct and they can tell if they have been used & also deactivate the ones you left at home.

    Don't listen to Mr. Hand ... he's an idiot!

    So long as YOU are the one that purchased them...you'll be fine.

    if not....it's gonna be tough...

    damn that's piss poor planning
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!
