You can start picking up wristbands for The FADER FORT Presented by Converse on Tuesday, March 17th. Wristband pick up will be located on San Marcos street between 4th and 5th in Austin and powered by Dell and Queue Ticketing. Picking up a wristband for your guest? They MUST be with you when you check in. SXSW badge-holders who have RSVP'd will need to pick up a FORT wristband, but will be given priority access to enter the FORT on a first come, first serve basis.
