Yea they are real, some people have VIP boxes and don't want to go. Some are promo tickets from radio station or sponsors. I know Kokanee gave VIP tickets to people that won them. Not sure why those ones that he posted have a price on them cause they are not sold as part of a regular package for Sasquatch. On mine the price is just XXXX.XX. Heres a picture of mine:
They normally have a good amount of individual merch, theres normally two or three stands, you will see them as you make your way to the mainstage. The booths that do sell merch, sell for all the bands. Last year each one had slightly different items so if you don't see Childish Gambino shirts ask the worker or check the other booth. The items changed a little day to day as well.
All the merch is sold in these booths together with the festival themed shirts, posters, hoodies, etc..

I won VIP tickets from a Kokanee promotion. They are hard tickets one for each day. In the section it says GA row GA6 seat 40 admission COMP, they grey and with a green part and a silver VIP on the end of it. The promotion said it came with camping but I didn't receive any information or separate camping vouchers/tickets. Does anyone know what level of ticket this is? What it accesses (special seat or box or tent?), What kind of camping would be included? etc.
I called Live Nation and they said they couldn't asnwer my questions because it was a promotional ticket - although the tickets say live nation all over them. This will be our first time going - any help would be appreciated
If your ticket has the VIP foil but says GA then it just grants you access to regular camping, the festival, and the Cliff House VIP lounge.
Box seats will say BOX225 or whatever box the seat is in and row 1 or 2 and have a seat number that should be 1-20 or so.

Sorry I didn't see this earlier, I can indeed confirm if your ticket has the foil vip stamp it grants you Cliff House access. If it has the foil vip and under section has a box number then you have seat access and in seat wait service.
Super tickets usually have a lanyard with laminate, this grants you side stage access main stage, side stage on the second biggest stage, and platform access in the dance tent. Guest passes and backstage access will have a cloth wristband. Press usually have paper type wristbands.
I know it may be a long shot but anyone think Jack White and John C Reilly might show up to a signing? Third Man Records seems to be one of the most enthusiastic labels I have seen in regards to vinyl in recent times.
