Thread: What date were wristbands sent/received last year?

  1. #1

    Default What date were wristbands sent/received last year?

    I honestly can't remember, and I didn't find my receipt when I looked yesterday. I thought sometime around March 15, but the festival was a week later last year, yes?

    Flame, ignore, whatever. I'm just asking since things seems to stay around the same time and I want to know when to start looking for mine.

    I think I got ours on the 12th or something, but around the 2nd week of March for sure.

    Thanks. That's around the time I thought, as well. And the similar threads below all seem to have that everyone had tickets in hand by around St. Patrick's Day. I wonder if they'll start a week earlier because they have twice the boxes to send AND the first weekend is earlier than last year.

    Anyway, lame first thread for a guy who's been around for a while and lurked for three years.

    I think they shipped them out early April last year.
    I remember getting mine the day before I left for the fest.
    Talk about a freak out.

    Don't expect a signature to be required as advertised they will just throw it on your front porch

    Mine arrived March 30th last year. They typically get mailed out in waves, not one giant shipment so delivery dates will vary.

    Yeah, it seems like people were getting them on the same day one week, and then nothing for a few days, and then another wave, etc.

    This is giving me major stress. I live in a huge apartment complex and know hardly any of my neighbors. I am worried that the day they deliver it will be a day that my boyfriend and I are both at work.

    Sick! What an awesome connect to have. Any way you could ask her what order they're sent out in, if any? Pre-order first? Alphabetical? Random?

    There were a lot of stressed out people on here last year but from what I heard, you can have your wristband deactivated if it gets lost or stolen and you'll still get into the fest. Not sure about the details though.

    leave a note on your door asking that any packages be left with the front office.

    What a great idea. I don't know why I didn't think of that!

    I believe the people that had a problem with this last year ended up picking up their tickets at Will Call, which caused Will Call to be pretty f*cking busy. But it still worked out.

    Okay cool. It's good to know that if something disastrous happens it won't be the end of the world. Haha.

    No matter what it's smart to print out your receipt, bring the card you used for purchase or save the information on your phones email. Last year when my friends went to have the material fixed on their bracelets (Thursday getting into car camping) they scanned their bracelets and said they were fake. Without proof of purchase they would have been fucked, turns out it was a broken scanner.

    I would have been so pissed if they freaked me out like that for no reason.

    Last year when they scanned our camping decal, it didn't scan right and the guy went to get another security person to help him. The second person scanned it again and told us "this has already been scanned." Uhh....duhh..... I was annoyed. It took them a few minutes to figure it out. I was freaking out a little bit, lol.

    I had already gotten through the camping line and was setting up camp when they called and told me. Since it was just us three and one of them owned the car I was freaking out for an hour, chugging beers, going over my options and when I found out it was just a broken scanner I felt so relieved for them.

    I am so excited for my box to arrive! I had the shipping address changed to my job where I know someone can sign for it. Maybe that would be an option for you, Light?

    My friend who is coming from Texas just text me and said she received a shipping confirmation e-mail with a tracking number. Anyone else get one of the e-mails yet? Looks like they're on their way.

    yah they definitely came in waves, as my friends in different zip codes within our city got them at different times. But no worrying, they did send out emails notifying when they were shipped with a tracking number last year
