Did I pay more for more space, shorter walk, better view, shuttle option, alleged more shower options for premiere camping? Yes. Was it worth it? For me, yes. I like to spread out and have the option to fall asleep by midnight in a mostly-silent area. Did I miss out in the 'experience'? Can't say for sure... Cuz I had the best festival experience in my life. Anything further would be a bonus.
Yeah, anyone can get in that line. I have no problem with that. My problem lies with the slow-as-balls douche bags who inspect every damn person down to their moles and freckles before they let them in.
I used premiere last year and I thought it was well worth it. I got a warm shower every morning and the shuttle was very convenient after a long day of standing and watching bands. It was a very short walk into general camping where the party was happening.
