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’.
