Thousands turned away at EDC over bogus wristbands

For most festival-goers at Electric Daisy Carnival, a simple tap of their wristband and the RFID chip attached to it at the festival gates granted access to a world of music, lights and dancing. But for some who bought their ticket from a scalper or other private seller, the night ended with a beep and red flash on the machine. After visiting a help tent, they learned their wristband was invalid. Many were from previous EDCs, or were wristbands that falsely reported as lost or stolen and later resold. However, the electronic chip inside the “lost” bracelet is instantaneously deactivated, rendering it invalid.
