    Re: 2014 Photos (Best of)

    Kind of funny how people in the crowd got better Ryan Adams pics than credentialed photographers (who had to shoot from the soundboard).

    Re: Tickets price will rise each year?

    Kind of wish they'd wait more than a month to give wallets a little break; but I guess there's always the pre-sale payment plans.

    Re: things to do as VIP?

    It does seem like they keep selling more and more VIP wristbands without actually expanding the VIP spaces. The Drake crowd was nuts W1, both inside and outside the vaguely important pen.

    Re: Access to VIP entrance without VIP parking?

    We arrived fairly late (6ish) most days and there still seemed to be plenty of room in lots 1B/C. I'd say it's worth a try to park there before going to the other lots.

    In VIP you just need to show that you have a 21+ wristband to order from the bars.
