Are Lollapalooza VIP Tickets Worth It?
Curious if Lollapalooza VIP tickets are worth it? We asked Lolla vets for their opinion.
“In my opinion, definitely not worth it. The vip areas are up a huge hill oriented pretty far from the stages. There isn’t a lack of shade at the festival, nor places to get beer.” ~ Shelby, 2010
“There was a ton of free booze and vitamin water. I met the Geico Caveman.” ~ Vanessa, 2009
Our editors believe Lollapalooza has put some serious work into enhancing the benefits associated with VIP and Platinum tickets in recent years, making them entirely worth it. Let’s take a brief overview of what benefits can maximize your Lollapalooza experience.
Lollapalooza VIP tickets allows you a daily wristband for each day of the festival, Friday – Sunday. These VIP wristbands allow you unlimited access to Lolla Lounge North and South. You can also take advantage of access to VIP Golf Cart shuttle transportation. Finally, any music festival attendee can appreciate fully air conditioned bathroom facilities.
Beer, wine and specialty cocktails are served daily. Taking in hours of endless music in the warm summer months can work up an appetite – heaping portions of catered food can solve that, easy.
Conditions at any music festival, even Lollapalooza, require the certain amount of stamina. Recharge with mini-spa treatments throughout the entire weekend. Stay relaxed within exclusive shaded areas and supremely comfortable lounge seating.
But what about the music? VIP tickets for Lollapalooza provide excellent viewing areas, boasting premium viewing platforms with undisrupted sightlines.
Okay, so how about Lollapalooza Platinum tickets? For a little more coin, you can splurge a whole lot more.
Platinum wristbands allow you access to air-conditioned Platinum-exclusive hospitality areas North & South. This hospitality entitles you a full complimentary bar and some professionally catered meals. Depending on how much you spend on food and beverages during Lollapalooza, this justifies a serious portion of the Platinum ticket and allows you to sustain the party.
Unique to Lollapalooza, Platinum users can experience access to the Artist Lounge areas. This puts you up close and personal with some of Lollapalooza’s artists, an experience that begins within the 4 Platinum Viewing Areas close to every major stage.
Finally, Platinum tickets allow you access to on-site Concierge hosts all weekend – every possible need or desire you have throughout your festival stay is essentially accommodated in style. Take home a complimentary Festival Merchandise Gift Bag (we hear these are actually amazing) AND you’ll have the ability to have first access to next year’s Lolla tickets.
Are Lollapalooza Platinum tickets worth it? Oh lord, yes. Some of the best we’ve seen.
