Thread: Wristband Activation

  1. #1

    Default Wristband Activation

    I am probably just overeager but when I received my wristband today I noticed it said it must be activated before going to the festival. Just wanting to cover my bases, I went to the homepage - as it instructed me to do - to figure out how to go about it, and found nothing. Is this something to hold off on until further notice or am I missing something?

    Sorry if this has been covered and is trite at this point; I trolled the topics a bit to see if there was anything on this but didn't find any answers.

    I think I read a moderator post that said the activation page would be up in a few weeks.

    They should charge extra for pre-activation.

    More Front Gate fail.

    They introduce this activation process without announcing it beforehand, and then aren't ready with the web page to do so, thus scaring/confusing people who shelled out $700-$750 for a pair of passes.

    Great job all around.

    Also, anyone have any idea why the activation has been introduced?

    Is it to prevent fraud, or to prevent scalping?

    I don't understand why people are freaking out about the ability to register the passes more than an entire month before the show.

    I just want to register my wristband now so that if something happens to it (e.g. it get's stolen) I can get it replaced. Also, it doesn't appear that anyone is freaking out....sounds more like curiosity to me.

    Dani, thanks for answering me, but two more questions.

    What is "activation" and what is the process going to entail?

    Why is it being done? Is it to thwart scalpers, or just to give people recourse if their wristbands get stolen?

    and one more question i haven't seen addressed.. how is it going to work for those picking up their wristbands at will-call? i'd imagine a fair amount of people go straight to the festival from picking up their wristbands. i don't think you can expect them to have immediate access to a computer. and not everyone has a smartphone, if that would even be an option for registering. we shall see.

    Hey guys if someone has registered a wristband under their name, can I still use it even though I'm not them?
