Your wristband is your ticket for festival entry and Dark Lord bottle pickup. It also can be used to purchase draft beer, food + merch with a tap of your wrist.

Wristbands will be mailed to you ahead of Dark Lord Day. More details on the Wristband Information page.


How do I get my Dark Lord?

You can enter the festival anytime. Your wristband is printed + chipped with a group assignment that indicates your Dark Lord pickup time:

Group A 9-11am / Group B 11am-1pm / Group C 1-3pm / Group D 3-5pm / Group E 5-7pm

If you miss your group time, you can pick up your bottles in a later group. 

Dark Lord bottle pickup will take place inside the brewery. Security will check your group assignment, and scan and mark your wristband to indicate receipt of your bottles.

Dark Lord bottles are not available before or after the festival or to those who left without picking them up. 3 Floyds will not replace lost or broken bottles.

What can I bring?


Your wristband and ID are a must; you need a valid passport or U.S. ID to enter the festival. Also OK: standard-size backpacks no larger than 10x10x16 and without wheels or frames. Up to 72 ounces of beer; must fit in your backpack. Two factory-sealed bottles of water. Bottled water available from Humane Indiana and other charities; donation suggested but not required.

You and your belongings are subject to security screening and search upon entry to the festival. Failure to consent to security screening and search will result in denial of entry.

Can I leave and come back?

Yes. Once you’ve passed through the Main Entrance, you can exit at the Re-Entry Gate. Re-enter there with your Dark Lord Day wristband and the 21+ wristband received at entry. You do not have to wait in the Main Entrance line to get back in.

Beer can be carried out of the festival grounds in sealed, unopened containers, but you cannot re-enter with beer. You and your belongings are subject to security screening and search upon re-entry to the festival.
