No. Individual wristbands will be available at the door of each venue and will be good for only that night and at that venue (REMEMBER – these wristbands are not guaranteed because of limited availability and venue capacity rules – FESTIVAL WRISTBAND HOLDERS WILL ALWAYS HAVE FIRST PRIORITY.) Individual venue cover charges will vary. For more information on covers, please look here:

If someone decides to purchase a festival wristband on the day of the venue, they will need to purchase it at the Off Beat ticket offices located at The Eldorado Hotel & Casino/Silver Legacy Resort & Casino (Exact locations will be provided closer to the event).

  • General Admission wristbands will get folks into all of the festival venues EXCEPT the Cargo shows from Thursday through Sunday night. ($69)
  • All Access wristbands will get you into all of the festival venues INCLUDING the Cargo shows from Thursday through Sunday night. ($129)

NOTE –  The following shows will require an additional door charge for wristband holders, but if you show your wristband, you will receive a discount :

Nov 4th “Fresh Bakin’ & NoTown Beats presents ‘The Pink Party ft LEE BURRIDGE’ at 1Up

Nov 5th  Fresh Bakin’ presents an Off Beat showcase featuring Stylust Beats & LSDXOXO at 1Up

We will have cover charges at all of our venues ranging from $10 to $30 depending on the acts. Given demand and wristband sales, it is likely that some venues will not have room for walk-ups at all, and wristband holders will have priority access, so be prepared to wait in line.  P.S. – It’s way more economical to just buy a wristband, and way cooler too…and you’re more likely to be able to see and hear more acts spread out over town.

Tickets purchased online on our site can be purchased using credit cards. If you are looking at paying the cover charge at each individual venue on the day of the show, best to bring cash. The individual venues themselves will also take credit cards inside.

Wristbands are voided if lost, tampered with, destroyed or removed. Be careful with your wristband!

Each venue is subject to capacity rules, so if the venue is full, expect to wait in line. Wristband holders will have priority over non-wristband holders if the event is in a one-in, one-out situation. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU GET TO A VENUE EARLY, IF YOU WANT TO GUARANTEE SEEING ANY PARTICULAR ARTIST.

The primary location for attendees to redeem their tickets for wristbands will be at the Off Beat Headquarters located at Eldorado/Silver Legacy. Bring your ticket or proof of purchase to the Eldorado Information/Ticket Booth on the second floor of the Eldorado located at the end of the parking garage skyway near the escalators and gift shop.

Wristband redemption hours are:

Thursday November 3rd – 2 pm to 10 pm

Friday November 4th – 2 pm to 10 pm

Saturday November 5th – 2 pm to 10 pm

We will also be having a wristband redemption and listening party at the 40 Mile Saloon on Tuesday, November 1st from 5 pm to 9 pm. The address for 40 Mile is 1495 S. Virginia St., Reno, NV 89502.

We will have maps in our official program guide that will be made available the week of Off Beat and we also have an interactive map on our website ( that will help you navigate our festival locations.

We like to say that we are a tough and sturdy people and are not afraid of a little weather, in other words, the show must go on.

Off Beat will take place in multiple venues throughout Reno. Because of this each venue handles accessibility differently. Please reach out to our venues in advance if there are specific questions.

Each venue has different lost and found policies. Best to reach out to them if you think you’ve lost something.

Each venue is responsible for their own security resources.

As with most bars, many of our venues have ATM’s.
