    Default Coachella 2012 Festival Wristband Features

    By registering your wristband you will benefit from enhanced customer support, social media features, merchandise specials and potential upgrades. Register your wristband prior to applying it onto your wrist. You will be unable to read your Unique ID number once on your wrist.

    After registering your wristband on Coachella.com you will have the option to connect your Facebook account. Swipe your wristband to check in automatically at any of the RFID portals near stages and throughout the festival.


    So now when you go to a stage, it'll check you in on Facebook that you're at So-and-so stage watching this band or that (presuming you care enough to go to the RFID scanner at each tent.)

    Now if only they had some for the camp grounds.

    If you're worried about checking in on Facebook at every stage at Coachella then you aren't doing it right. I don't want GV, Facebook, or whoever knowing where I am and what I'm doing/purchasing at all times while I'm at the festival. But to each his own I guess...

    Then don't go at all, then they really won't know what you're doing.

    i think this could come in handy if youre trying to meet up with people at a certain stage because if they check in at least you know they have been to the stage already because i know i've left meeting spots too soon thinking the person must have been there by then.... i guess that also only really works if the internet on your phone is working also..... but still it could be helpful!

    Too bad you won't be able to log onto FB at the cluster f polo fields. So it won't really help with meeting up with friends. It's hard enough sending a text.

    what they said^^

    Well actually wait... I hear Free WIFI is a feature they will be using this year. I wonder if the wifi will only work on the campground or if they will bring it into the festival. And even then, will it be insanely slow due to so many people using it?

    Get a better cell/company. My Sprint Blackberry and Android phones both work perfectly from anyplace within the Polo Grounds.

    That being said, I keep the android in Airplane mode and only use it for emergencies, or to take pictures. I keep my blackberry on because it only takes 30 min to recharge to full and it lasts 2+ days.

    I sincerely doubt this is the purpose. It's for all your friends at home salivating over the live stream and seeing your check-in's at bands they wish they were at.

    Then double rolling eyes icons, because you both misinterpret the intended use of the feature.

    For those of you that got your wristbands, what all came with it this year?

    Last year had the sticker, the calendar, the little panel poster thing, and even the box itself was awesome.

    What we get this time?

    You know, them knowing who you're checking out and what you're buying will help them make sure that they have the things you like in future years.

    Yeah those are the positive aspects of the new features. I can understand why people would want to do it, but I'll be busy partying and checking into each stage will be the last thing on my mind.

    Yep. Good luck to everyone trying to get to the check-in station for Snoop/Dre and Radiohead. It'll be great when you don't have a good spot for the headliners because you had to show off to all your facebook friends (who already hate you out of jealousy and are going out of their way to have a great weekend while you're at Coachella).
