Music Wristbands go on sale for SXSW 2014
The SXSW Music team have announced the wristband sale for 2014. The first batch of the bands that give local residents access to the music showcases are on sale for $169 per wristband, with a maximum of two wristbands able to be purchased by any individual.
Do read the terms and conditions carefully, you need to have a credit card registered in a limited number of postcode areas, and the name on the credit card must match one of the names associated with a wristband.
The wristbands are not a substitute for a SXSW Music badge. They are intended for Austin locals so they can experience the music of the festival at a reduced cost compared to the visitors to the city, or those attending the Conference sessions. IN essence the lower price and restricted availability means the wristbands could be seen as a ‘thank you for letting us cause all this havoc in Austin’.
