What is an RFID wristband?

Last year the LA Pride Festival joined the likes of other festivals around the country by using RFID wristband technology. The wristband has encrypted technology that will be scanned upon entrance to Festival grounds. As a part of this system, everyone is required to wear a wristband within the perimeter of the Festival grounds and it must remain on for the remainder of the days you wish to attend the Festival. Your wristband must be worn securely on wrist.

When will I get my wristband?

If you purchased your tickets online and elected to have them shipped, you should receive your wristband no later than June 7th, 2017.

For international tickets and tickets purchased for will call pick-up, your wristband will be at the front gate entrance. Just make sure to have your ID and the credit card you purchased your tickets with.

What if I have not received my wristband?

Once you purchase your tickets online you will receive an order confirmation from See Tickets on behalf of LA Pride. Should you not receive your wristband refer to https://support.seetickets.us/hc/en-us.

I got my wristband! Now what?

Treat your wristband like cash. Each wristband is good for entrance by one person and is non-transferable. Once you have put on your wristband, DO NOT REMOVE or attempt to loosen your wristband! Improperly applied wristbands will delay your entrance to the Festival. Let’s keep the line flowing! We will not accept damaged or tampered wristbands. If your wristband is removed by Music Festival security for any reason it WILL NOT be replaced.

I lost my wristband. What do I do?

Wristbands will not be replaced if lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.

Can I upgrade my wristband?

Yes! You will be able to upgrade onsite. Go to the entry tent of the Delta Airlines Back Stage Experience entrance located next to the Blue Shield of California Park Stage inside of the Festival.

I bought my wristband somewhere other than lapride.org. Is that okay?

If you want 100% confidence in your ticket purchase, you should only purchase your tickets at lapride.org.

LA Pride does not condone the re-sale of LA Pride Festival tickets through Craigslist, eBay, StubHub or any other ticket outlet other than See Tickets.

Often times people will try to sell their wristbands to others if they cannot attend a certain day. Unfortunately, the removing of a wristband automatically voids it. Our security will assure that every wristband is properly worn and not damaged or tampered in any way.

If you are caught with a re-used wristband you will not be allowed entry.
