SXSW 2006 WRISTBAND INFORMATION
The Austin Chronicle will announce the dates when SXSW 2006 wristbands will go on sale in the February 24th issue.
To be among the first to find out when the wristbands will go on sales, join the SXSW SMS list to receive a text message. From your mobile phone, send a text-message to 56658 with 'sx add' as the message, and SXSW will send (512) mobile numbers a text alert when further wristband details are announced. Additionally, SXSW SMS will continue to provide updates and alerts before and during SXSW 2006. There is no extra charge for this service; normal text-messaging rates apply. SXSW SMS is sponsored by Yaris. Check sxsw.com for more info on SMS.
SXSW 2006 wristbands will go on sale priced at $130 (maximum two per person; cash or credit card only) at Waterloo Records ONLY. When the first 2000 $130 wristbands sell out, the price for the next 2000 will change to $150 (maximum two per person; cash or credit card only) available at Waterloo Records ONLY.
Please don't call Waterloo Records to ask questions about SMS or when wristbands will go on sale.
After the first 4000 wristbands are sold, SXSW will wait until March 9 to determine how many additional wristbands can be put on sale - if any - based on the pre-registration numbers for SXSW Music and Media Conference. If additional wristbands are put on sale, they will be priced at $175
Please be aware that SXSW registration numbers are running well ahead of previous years. It's likely that at most SXSW will only be able to release a very limited number of additional wristbands.
The prices will in-clude tax and all service/credit card charges. Wristbands will be sold only in Austin, on a walk-up basis as long as they last, and they cannot be reserved in advance or purchased over the phone.
Wristbands guarantee that you won't have to pay cover charges at SXSW venues. They don't guarantee entry into sold-out venues, nor do they provide entry for minors into clubs that don't admit minors. SXSW badges receive priority entry before SXSW wristbands.
