EDC ProTip: Removing a Wristband You Put on Too Early

As you receive your ticket package and shuttle wristband in the mail there’ll be excitement to just put it on and raise your hand in the air in victory but we suggest you wait. Do you really want to be wearing it for several weeks before the festival?

Unless it’s already too late… oops!

Or what if you put it on too tight? There’s some ways you can remove the wristband if you’ve put it on too tight or just want to take it off but you’ll also want to be careful that you don’t damage it. The wristbands are held in place by some teeth within the plastic and the easiest way to remove it is to insert a straw to loosening the teeth and slide the fabric out.

Here’s one of the better videos on YouTube that does a good job of explaining how you can try to remove an EDC Las Vegas 2015 wristband with a round type connector.

What if you break the wristband? For EDC Las Vegas 2015 wristbands here are the guidelines Insomniac provided:

If a wristband gets lost, stolen or damaged, only the person who registered it will be authorized to receive customer support. A $20 surcharge will apply for each wristband replacement.

Insomniac should be providing information about 2016 wristband replacements closer to the festival. We’ll keep you posted once we hear more details!

In the end the easiest thing is just to wait to put your wristband on right before you board the EDC Las Vegas shuttle on the first night and make sure you don’t put it on too tight!
