I got a reply from Live Nation on this question, sort of:
"Box tickets have a box seat and Cliff House VIP Club access. They do not receive any of the benefits that Supertickets get."
I followed up and asked what specifically those other benefits were (from what I can tell: 1) hospitality area, 2) "best view of the venue", and 3) merchandise credit/poster) but did not receive a reply. Gotta love LiveNation...
Does anyone have a clear understanding of the differences between the two? I did a search of the forums and only found some comments from the 2011 festival.
According to Stub Hub the VIP box tickets (hard tickets) only give you access to VIP box seating in the main area (so it sounds like a regular GA + main stage box seating), and the VIP Superpass gives access to all VIP seating areas + Cliff House (and other perks).
But I have seen a lot of people mentioning that VIP box tickets also get Cliff House access.
There definitely seems to be a difference between the Superpass and regular box, but I can't figure out exactly what and emails to Sasquatch VIP have gone unanswered.
Any help would be appreciated.
(And, yes, before anyone else says it: I realize that relative to GA, VIP is basically a huge ripoff... I have done plenty of festivals around the country as GA and a few as VIP and I'd tend to agree VIP is overrated for the money... so no need to point that out )
Er, yea, I should clarify I meant anyone dishing a VIP for under VIP face cost... (I know plenty of these are given away to industry people and those affiliated with LiveNation and their partners). Thanks for the assist, though, fox!
