AAC ID Solutions has been supplying security wristbands, lanyards and roll tickets for festivals, concerts and events for 15 years, working with almost every large music festival in Australia. Festivals and events have very specific identification and security needs, and our role is to provide a customised solution for each and every one of our customers.


Main priorities for festivals, concerts and events

  • Preventing gatecrashers and illegal entry to your event
  • Ensuring patrons, security staff, performers and other personnel are easily identified
  • Ensuring your security staff can easily understand what ID Solutions allow access to specific areas
  • Providing something comfortable, attractive and durable for your guests
  • Implementing a simple solution for what can sometimes be a complicated brief (single day, multiday, staff, performer, weekend camping, VIP, age 18+ verification etc)
  • Ensuring that identification and credentials are not easily replicated or forged.
  • Ensuring your ticketing and/or scanning solutions work seemlessly with your ID credentials


Criteria for determining the right solution

Of course, different festivals and events have different requirements; here are some of the key criteria for determining an appropriate AAC solution.


How many days is your event running?


The duration of your festival or event will determine the type of wristbands you require. Here are some simple recommendations for different length events:


Single day events - single day events can of course use any type of security wristband, but the most popular will always be Tyvek wristbands.


Multi day events - for events lasting 2-3 days, plastic wristbands or vinyl wristbands are recommended. If your event is going to last for 3+ days (like many of the big music festivals do, including Bluesfest, Woodford Folk Festival, Splendour in the Grass etc), then woven wristbands are the best choice by far.


Do you require barcoding or RFID?


More events are integrating specialised event and ticketing management solutions which require the use of barcoded wristbands or wristbands with RFID tags.
