In my haste to get my Street Scene pre-sale ticket, and because I don't really support the idea of buying a VIP package, I didn't mention that there were, in fact, VIP packages for sale for the festival.
$300 gets you the silver, $500 the gold, and $1150 the platinum with access to watch bands from onstage.
I'm trying to support this event, I'm trying to give LiveNation the benefit of the doubt here, but it would be nice if this festival was actually about the music. I know I'm just a pawn, and I know I'm a sucker, but I wanna believe someone cares about the music, right?
The VIP passes include access to a private VIP stage and I would like to state for the record that if a band is relegated to only play the VIP stage, they SHOULD NOT be listed in the general event posters.
And one more thing, LiveNation, don't even dare pulling your House of Blues camera bullshit policy. There will be a revolt.
