SXSW Music Wristbands On Sale Today

South by Southwest Music Festival wristbands go on sale at 10am this morning at They’re $159, including tax.

Here’s SX’s wristband rules & regulations:

“Sales are limited to Austin area residents. All advance sales will be online. Individuals may purchase one wristband for themselves and one for another person whose name must be provided at the time of purchase. Online purchase requires a credit card with a billing zip code in the Austin area. A list of zip codes is available at”
