I would have to agree. I was contemplating buying VIP tixs for this year (if the line up convinces me) and was looking at what all you get for the cash.....and I'm thinking: not much. But I wanted to see what others, who have had the VIP package in the past thought.
What are your opinions? Is it worth the dough?
There are a few things to consider. I understand that Coachella has done away with VIP food and are now making it an additional purchase. Not sure if Sasquatch is doing the same. But in 2007 the VIP food was hot and actually food with a difference between lunch and dinner. Whereas in 2008, it was lunch meat and vitamin water all day long. In 2009 maybe it'll be pretzels.
The VIP seating area is cool, it's directly center to the stage (next to the soundboard) and last year The Upright Citizen's Brigade guys sat there making a wee bit of starfucking possible. Lots of space to dance as needed. That was probably my favorite bit about VIP. I could go down to the masses when I wanted and if I needed to lounge, go back up to VIP.
You also get vouchers for gear, though the 2007 manbag was cooler than the 2008 backpack.
Premiere Camping is included obviously, not sure what the cost would be separately.
Is it really worth it? Probably not. But there's a certain coolness to it, especially if you're bringing a girl. In fact, except in 2 instances (ome of which the guys won VIP tickets from a Boston radio station), all the VIPers I met were couples.
