Are Bonnaroo VIP Tickets worth it this year? Our editors say, ‘YES!’.
You’ll notice some overlap with the Bonnaroo VIP amenities in relation to other major US music festivals such as Coachella. We do believe Bonnaroo stakes a strong enough case for splurging if you have the money to burn.
Amenities really start with exclusive VIP entrance into the festival, designed to get you into the actual grounds quickly and efficiently. Past experience has proven this is a major plus, particularly in regards to those camping onsite. Speaking of camping, VIP tickets offer you preferred parking and camping in close proximity to the venue for one car with eligibility for an RV upgrade.
One of the worst parts about Bonnaroo is the considerable humidity – you’ll NEVER feel clean. Despite that, it’s nice to take a brief reprieve with VIP access to special showers and bathroom facilities. Additional VIP faculties include three exclusive lounge areas that carry laptops and charging stations – even gaming areas for those inclined to play Call of Duty instead of watching the music they paid hundreds of dollars to see. Ahem.
VIP tickets also afford you access to exclusive viewing areas for the What and Which stages. We’re big fans of the viewing areas when it comes to more universal festivals like Bonnaroo and Coachella, where removing yourself from the core crowd actually doesn’t detract from the overall experience. Sometimes the best takeaways from these fests involves sitting out on a beach towel under the stars in close proximity to the artists.
