^^ That and the backstage access almost makes me want to drop a grand on VIP tickets next year
You didn't need VIP to get into that bar. I don't think many people knew that though because it was always empty.
No shit huh... well they sure make it seem like it's VIP only because of the "superticket" sign to the right of the entrance, which was apparently just for backstage access. I'll keep that in mind for next year. Still considering VIP if the lineup is good enough. I would have done it this year if I had enough money.
Haha I know exactly what you're talking about. The VIP entrance and the bar entrance were right next to each other and were only separated by a small chain link fence. I was pretty hesitant to try and go in myself, but someone else in my group had already gone in earlier. It was pretty incredible!
Sorry for the large picture, but it wouldn't have had the same effect if it was any smaller. My attempt at a panorama from the bar on the side of the stage. I stood there for about 10 minutes during Feist just taking it all in. Absolutely the most breathtaking view I've seen from the Gorge.
I was in there during Feist enjoying a drink and the view as well, must have been standing right next to ya.

Some girl came barreling through the crowd, walked RIGHT up to me, looked me directly in the eyes and 'gave' me a light show. I am almost entirely certain that it was someone who knew who I was, but I have no idea who she was. My best guess is that it was that girl who I banned for trying to scalp Permier wristbands right before the fest. I definitely felt like that light show was meant for me.
And you know what, as high as I was just then (very), I was still nothing but annoyed by it.
My girlfriend found some fire spinners in the campgrounds Monday night and spun for a bit, while I wore these prism sunglasses someone gave me inside the fest. That combined with the cocktail my brain was on made for quite the visual experience.
