Thread: INVALID WRISTBAND FOR WEEKEND 2 OMFG HELP ME

    Angry INVALID WRISTBAND FOR WEEKEND 2 OMFG HELP ME

    I bought through Stubhub and it shipped to my house today. I open it up to activate it and:

    "That does not appear to be a valid wristband ID. Please check the number and verify you are registering for the correct weekend."

    WTF I AM TWO DAYS AWAY FROM THE EVENT. Everything is WEEKEND 2. Order, shipment, receipt, even the damn wristband which I am holding in my hand while I type this.

    SOMEONE HELP. Does it REALLY need to be activated/registered for me to get inside?

    Answer: yes, it definitely needs to be activated for you to get inside. You should contact StubHub and find about what you need to do to get it fixed. StubHub apparently guarantees any tickets purchased through them, and they have some "Last Minute Service Center" presumably in Indio somewhere to replace your problem wristband if activation was messed up by the seller. If it was me, I'd figure that out now and try to get it swapped for a good band that you can activate as soon as possible.

    So I might be able to make you feel better about this. We gave a wristband to a friend the morning that we were getting in the car camping line last weekend. We had purchased the wristband from Coachella directly and it hadn't even been taken out of the box until we gave it to him. He tried to activate it and it said the code was invalid. He panicked. My wife (who's name was on the order) went up to the front of the line to talk to someone. They found someone that scanned his wristband and it worked fine, even though it wasn't registered. They were then told as long as it scans, that's all that matters.

    So, if it scans, you are good. Unfortunately, it is hard to know that until tomorrow when you can ask someone who has a scanner to scan it.

    In all seriousness, call StubHub. We can't do anything for you.

    Our friend bought W1 through stubhub. When we got the wristband they went to register it and got an invalid error. After the initial panic, they logged out and waited a while. They logged back in and was able to register it successfully. I'm not sure why we got the error, but it scanned at the festival they had no problems all weekend. I hope this gets resolved for you!
