Last year I won a VIP pass... first experience with that... My pass didn't include the meal(s) just snacks, but I was able to grab a beer at a discount when I wanted to, basic snacks, cold drinks, etc. It was a comfy space & was cool to be able to get out of the sun for a bit... Sound was good because of extra speakers inside, also there were video monitors. There's a fenced in area facing the stage from the right with tables & chairs, but what was great, and new last year, was the large elevated platform located in the center if the concert field, probably about 30 yards back, stage level- just for those with VIP access- not attached to the tent, btw. It was really fun, but would I pay all that extra $$ for the family? Probably not, but ask me again if it rains a lot this year. Last year, weather was perfect.
