Thread: Does registration guarantee authenticity of wristband?

    Question Does registration guarantee authenticity of wristband?

    I didn't buy my ticket from the Coachella website and resorted to StubHub. I was able to register the wristband on the Coachella website once I got it but was wondering if this guarantees that the wristband is authentic and that I'll be able to get in through the gates.

    Thanks!

    UPDATE: I ended up calling the registration hotline and asked customer service. As long as you are able to register your wristband and your status updates with your weekend and RFID, you're good to go.

    You just fell for one of the oldest scams in the book. Jesus, how could you be so naive?

    I think Stubhub is 100% legit but I'm gonna register mine now too just in case.

    StubHub doesn't guarantee that the tickets are legit...they just have a money-back guarantee if the tickets you get aren't legit. However, that doesn't cover any costs getting there.

    So register your tickets, and if they are not legit Stubhub tries to find you new ones at comparable prices, and if they can't you'll get a refund.
