No, the wristbands were $175 last year. Not sure how much the badges were. I imagine the wristbands will be around $200 this year. Badges are on sale now, wristbands won't go on sale until February. They do this to get people to buy the badges, as they are obviously much more expensive (and more profitable for the festival). The wristbands will get you into all of the shows (that aren't private) so long as there is room. The badges get preferential access first, though. Does this make sense?
