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.

If someone decides to purchase a festival wristband on the day of the event, there will be limited supplies at all venues, if the venue runs out they will need to purchase it at the Off Beat ticket offices located at The Saint.

GIVEN THE LINE-UP THIS YEAR, EXPECTED DEMAND AND WRISTBAND SALES, IT IS LIKELY THAT SOME VENUES WILL NOT HAVE ROOM FOR WALK-UPS AT ALL. THE ONLY WAY TO GUARANTEE ACCESS TO A SHOW IS GET THERE EARLY WITH A WRISTBAND OR PURCHASE THE VIP PASS. Wristband holders will always 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 midtown.

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.

There’s a saying in Nevada; If you don’t like the weather just wait five minutes. 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 Midtown 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.
