I don’t understand why this is the best lineup. The lineup is alright so far. Wanee blows this out the water.

Super VIP tickets, eh? Mo Money, Mo Money, Mo Money!

Yes, Wanee always has a killer lineup, and a beautiful venue but the police presence is always excessive and very eager to make quota. No problem if your smart, but that’s asking alot from some folks. No idea how the fuzz will be at Interlocken but the venue looks beautiful. As far as the lineup goes, I’d say it’s approaching epic. Panic, Furthur, Cheese, Fogerty, Crowes and Neil Young. Some playing multiple nights. Are you fucking kidding? That’s an unbelievable weekend.

VIP are six hundred dollars. Super VIP are one thousand dollars. I’m going to purchase ten of each. Sweet.

@jaded… Nice… after they’re sold out, if you put yours up on eBay with a Buy It Now of no more than 5k each… I’ll snag 9 from you and we’ll chill stage side together and we’ll burn the other 8 just cause we can afford it…

What??? May 23, 2013, 10:36:02

I smell a rat!!! Just bought 2 VIP tix. Said $499 each on site. Total after freaking fees etc was almost $1300!!! $70+ in service fees per ticket. Service for what?? It happened so fast I don’t even know where the other $100+ came from. I’m so pissed. Thought this fest was different. This better be the best freaking wkend of my life!! Wtf?????

I just bought one super VIP came to 1054.00 total, seemed reasonable to me with everything it comes with.

“Super VIP Tickets”? What’s next? “Super-Duper-Explosivo-Incredible VIP Tickets”? How about a ticket that allows me to take a dump in a private, gold-plated shitter with a valet outside to wipe my butt? This festival VIP ticket crap pisses me off. Hey, I have an idea! How about one ticket, one price, everyone’s the same? None of this, “Hey, you dirty fuckin’ hippy, get outta that VIP area or I’ll tase you!!” And the fact that the bands are enabling this pisses me off even more. Why should Furthur give a shit if you paid $100 bucks for a ticket or a thousand? Oh, that’s right, they’ve sold out like the rest of them. Buncha pussies…

Remember when you could see a Grateful Dead
show for around $35 or less and enjoy the parking lot scene to boot….Those days are long gone….Hope those who paid $500/$1000 for VIP Tickets thought it was worth it !!!!
