New Wristbands Process for Summer Night Concerts Makes For a Fuller Fair Day

Everything you need to know about getting into the Summer Night Concerts for FREE!

Rather than have you stand in a line all afternoon to get into the PNE Amphitheatre for free, we’ve introduced a new procedure this year: Time-stamped wristbands (and much less waiting)!

Beginning at 2:00pm daily, time-stamped wristbands will be available at no cost to guests wanting to see that night’s concert. Wristbands will only be available at the Revelation ride booth located on the North East corner of Playland next to The Corkscrew entrance.

Wristbands will be available on a first come first served basis. Only one (1) wristband will be issued per guest and they must be secured on your wrist by staff at the booth.

GUESTS DO NOT NEED TO WAIT IN LINE TO GET INTO THE VENUE. That’s right! Your wristband secures your time of entry.  Simply return to the Revelation booth 10 minutes before the time stamp on your wristband.

The first group of wristbands will be allowed in at 6:00pm, followed by a 6:30pm group, 7:00pm group, and 7:30pm group (access times stamped on wristbands). ALL WRISTBANDS EXPIRE AT 8:00pm. Your wristband does not guarantee entry after 8:00pm. All concerts start at 8:30pm (except for the iHeartRadio music festival September 3 & 4).

For more information on the wristband policy, please click here.
