Wristband Information

Wristband registration is required for all attendees and ensures a smooth process when entering the Festival each day and makes sure that your Outside Lands experience remains yours.

While you Register your wristband on your computer or mobile device, you will be given the option to link your Chase credit or debit card, our preferred payment partner, for great benefits onsite. You may also link any of your credit cards to your wristband and set a required PIN for security. That’s all you have to do!

Once again, Wine Lands is a cashless zone! This means you will use your RFID wristband to purchase glasses and tastes of wine with a simple tap of your wristband and PIN!
