You’ve just arrived back from an amazing weekend of dancing, drinking and laughing at that crazy festival you’d always wanted to go to. You met some amazingly brilliant people, discovered new bands and even quite enjoyed camping. Every time you look down at that brightly coloured bit of fabric on your wrist it makes you smile because it reminds you of one of the best weekends of your life! But then reality hits, “I’ve got to take this band off for work!!!” and then you scream, cry, drop to your knees, throw back your head and shout to the heavens WHHHYYYYY???…….ok maybe not, but at some point you gotta get that Festival wristband off one way or another.
Some people are quite happy to cut it off, throw it away and move on, but if you want to know how to get your festival wristband off WITHOUT CUTTING, here’s how…..
Excuse the slightly muddy hand, it was a very muddy Glastonbury Festival
Find a plastic bag, any one will do as long as it’s deep enough to put your hand into and so it comes 3 or 4 centimetres above the line of your wristband. A thin bag with handles, like this supermarket one (other supermarkets are available) is ideal.
Place your hand with the festival wristband on inside the bag.
Tuck the ends of the bag underneath the wristband until the whole wristband is on top of the bag and no longer touching your bare skin.
Pull the bag tight so that your fingers are touching the bottom of the bag.
Pull the top of the plastic bag down to where your fingers are and start pulling, the tighter your wristband is, the harder you will need to pull. The band should then roll off over your hand.
Marvel at your fulling intact wristband
I’d love to know if any of you try this method and how you got on? Also, what do you do with your festival wristbands once they’re off? make some sort of keep sake? display them? squeeze them back on? let me know in the comments.
Happy festivaling x
For the eagle eyed of you, you will have noticed the blog posts a little slow of late. A combination of concentrating hard on my digital marketing biz and not reeeeally going anywhere, apart from the odd night out. But this week I had the opportunity to spend 24 hours...

My weekend at Music Republic Festival, Vietnam: Squat toilets in the dark and feeling like a Z list celebrity
Ever since I arrived in Asia I’d been looking for festivals to go to. I love the buzz of waiting in line, ticket in hand listening to the massive bass of the sound check. Standing in a field with lots of like-minded people to enjoy good music is totally my jam. Plus,...
