Anyone considering VIP would be better off using the money to go to a festival in mainland Europe.
Pretty much this.
I never VIPed, the thought crossed my mind but here's the catch: I wouldn't spend a penny in the bar because its alot of money even still. Toilets I go in too rekt to care. I would probably be in no fit state to drive a vehicle home so ill be arriving by train. So really the only thing I would be benefiting from is a good nights sleep which I am a bit of a night guy at these things so I really wouldn't benefit at all. Ill be up when the heat is trapped in my tent/the rain is hitting my tent/the wind is trying to pull up my tent etc etc.
Might just be worth getting a hotel with a couple of people, but ill cross that bridge when I get to it. Thur-Sat can't cost that much can it? Anyone hotel wish to shine a light on this?
