I work in the music industry. Why can't I buy a wristband?

A SXSW Music registration is necessary for music industry personnel to fully participate in SXSW events. Wristbands do not allow entry to music industry events, such as panels, keynote speeches, the trade show, receptions, private parties, or the Sunday barbecue and softball. Music wristbands are meant specifically for music fans who would like to attend showcases only.
