An RFID 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.

Your wristband will be mailed to you ahead of Dark Lord Day. But don’t put it on till then ’cause it won’t come off 😬


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: backpacks up to 20” without wheels or frames. Up to 72 ounces of beer; must fit in your backpack. Hydration packs must be empty and will be inspected; a water station is located at the north end of the fest (map coming soon). Bottled water is available from Humane Indiana and other charities for a suggested donation.
