    Not worth it. Guest pass is the one to get, but you couldnt afford it anyway.

    you get the side tents in one area...woo hoo

    you get closer to main stage for early shows...late shows everyone jumps em...

    If you got extra money to burn...yep it's worth it
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    VIP is worth it for me just for the close parking and dedicated entry.

    The extra food options (& short lines) are cool too.

    The best part was sitting in VIP having a beer and watching AF when Win went off on VIP. I mean, I agreed with him, the place was full of douchebags. But I was enjoying my beer and watching the set at the same time. That's tough to do in GA.

    It was probably a fluke, but the last time I did GA parking, I was stuck in the lots for hours at the end of two out of three nights. Spending extra money for VIP seems insane, but the easy parking, dedicated entry, and easy exit really feels worth it at the end of the night. Other than that, the "perks" are minimal.

    (I had a photo pass (again) this year got a close look at the artist/guest holding pens -- even they looked kind of wretched at times with stampedes of people squeezing, shoving, and loudly proclaiming their importance to get in and out during some of the big shows.)

    if you're lazy the walk is shorter to enter the festival and getting in is super fast. the porta potties were always clean and with no wait.. but they are still porta potties (my friends with ga had to wait 30 minutes in line to go to a disgusting port potty). There are also more food options and a little bit better. There is a full bar with fancy mixed drinks too, not just beer. Also there is a ton of shade if you can't stand the heat along with fans and ample seating. The con is that it's almost 3x the price for only 2 vip sections with not even a better view of stages. but it is def fun to people watch in there.

    VIP isn't worth that extra cost compared to GA

    I got free VIP upgrade on day thanks to SAMSUNG and enjoyed it.
    The VIP bathrroms are garbage..porta potties and even the trailers.
    ROSE GARDEN BATHROOMS ARE ALL TIME AMAZING but only those.
    VIP is where you can see bored rich people, hasbeen-celebs, and real celebs before they dip out to the all-access only areas.
    Food lines are much shorter than GA food lines.

    Dude from arcade fire said it best "they want to make it seem like something's going on back there that you're missing, we'll you aren't missing anything"
    The rose garden was also the only place you could get a decent spot to chill out during peak hours.

    Like I said, for free? FUCK YEAH.
    paying extra $300 FUCK NO

    if they do a price adjustment or actually make VIP somewhat VIP status then HELL YEAH

    VIP parking is extra from VIP wristband.
    and I DID NOT HAVE VIP PARKING but parked IN the VIP lot everyday of the fest.

    you just have to arrive before 2:30pm and they put you in that lot anyway. 1a and 1b
    it's a very short walk.
    VIP entrance MAY or MAY NOT be more lax. it depends.
    Some days I was able to take in closed water bottles.
    every day of the fest I was able to take in a huge dangerous Multi-tool and a small knife.
    but everyday they bitched about my rolling papers. and only on day one did they take my weed from me.
