Wristband Pick Up Instructions

Thank you for attending The Wrecking Ball ATL 2016 music festival to celebrate The Masquerade’s farewell to O4W on Saturday, August 13, and Sunday, August 14! With the festival only one week away, here is some information that will be valuable to you.

Wristbands will be available for pick-up not only the days of the festival, but the Thursday (8/11) and Friday (8/12) before. Festival wristband pick-up will be conducted inside of The Masquerade’s building. In order to receive your wristband, you will need to bring your festival ticket/ticket purchase confirmation/valid photo ID with you. Stop by any time from 12:00 NOON – 7:00 PM to get them! We really encourage that you come the Thursday and Friday before so that you can make your entry into the festival smoother.

If you arrive the Thursday and Friday before the festival, please be conscious that there are events happening Friday night so plan accordingly. In fact, we would like to invite you to come and celebrate with us at our Pre-Festival show with Poison the Well that Friday (8/12, doors at 7:00 PM) or our Wrecking Ball Emo Night Pre-Party featuring Geoff and Tucker of Thursday presented by The Masquerade and Nashville Is The Reason (doors at 9:00 PM)! Tickets are still available, so come by The Masquerade’s Box Office any time between 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM to avoid online fees.


Lastly, here are some DO’s + DON’Ts for your wristband once you have received it:

Something to stress about the wristband is that it is non-transferable, meaning that you cannot use the wristband one day and then give it to someone else to use the next day. Why?

These wristbands do not loosen or come off. There is a little bead that slides down and it only moves in one direction and that is to tighten the wristband. Once it is on, it will make your wrist its home for the whole weekend. Please note that they are also waterproof so you do not need to worry about it getting wet. It will stay on. Any wristband that is not applied tightly enough and can slip on or off will be confiscated and not replaced.

In no way will one of these wristbands “just fall off” unless you make it fall off. Do not cut, burn, stretch, twist, tear, tape, glue, tuck, or alter the wristband in any way shape or form. Wristbands that are tampered in any way will not be allowed in the festival and will be confiscated without being replaced. If there is an issue, please leave the wristband on and visit the festival’s Box Office to find a solution.


Thank you so much for your continued support! We will see you at The Wrecking Ball!
