Post VIP Ticket Questions
I am thinking if I should spring for the VIP ticket in addition to what is listed below - is it worth the extra money?

VIP Package Includes:
(1) VIP 3-Day pass to the festival with music starting at 12:30PM on Thursday
Special concert viewing area at Peach and Mushroom stages
3 nights of primitive camping (Thurs., Fri. & Sat.)
Wanee 2016 VIP T Shirt
Commemorative Wanee 2016 Laminate, and Poster
Private Restrooms Catered Lunch and Dinner on Friday & Saturday
Complimentary snacks and soft drinks.
Reduced Price Adult drinks!

My personal opinion is that it is not... The only true benefit is that there is preferred space on the side of the stage (not the best sight lines) which allows one to not have to get worked up over the "chair people" at the main stage. Added to this, unlike virtually all other multi-day camping festivals, it does not include special or reserved camping nor does it include your alcohol. I am a huge fan of the Wanee festival, but of all of the festivals out there, the VIP for this one is one of the worst festival VIP packages available.

The VIP package works for some people. Very well.
The food (in 2013) was pretty good. 2 lunch, 2 dinner. Fri/sat.
The treehouse listening area is one of the better sounding areas in the peach field. (IMO)
The bathrooms are much nicer than the usual port-o-lets
The beer is 1/2 price, if i remember correctly...

Having said that, and trying VIP in 2013, i can say it is not a good value for me. I just dont see *that* much added value for a LOT more money.

I hope someone that uses VIP at Wanee can come through with more 'high' points for you. They sell a lot of them, there MUST be benefits for people.

Thank you for the replies - having gone to Wanee now for the past two years - I do like the idea of the VIP access at the Mushroom stage, the Peach stage I have to agree its a little off center and the viewing seems not too good - the food sounds good - and the 1/2 drinks sound attractive but for the added money - not too sure if the dollar value outweighs the benefits. They will let me add on the VIP cost difference to what I already paid - we shall see ...

For some people VIP is a very good choice, people flying in, people who don't like to cook, or those who like upgraded bathrooms it's a good choice. I've done VIP and to be honest, since I like to cook and my camp site is so close to the stages that the upgrade amounts to the swag bag. $300 extra doesn't justify it. But for someone who likes the perks and can put away A LOT of discounted beers over the weekend, it's a whole different story. (By the way, I got miracle upgraded to VIP this year. I'm willing to buy anyone discounted beers...)

They're pretty cheap at the store, you just have to throw them over the fence to your partner.

VIP is totally worth it. The viewing is off center but it is still very good. The food is good, bathrooms are air conditioned and clean. Beers are much cheaper. Covered area for when it rains. Mushroom viewing area is great.
