I just tried to by my VIP ticket and the only option that I get is to print the tickets at home. Last year we the tickets mailed with all the information about the festival and the VIP. Is printing at home really the only option?

I'm pretty sure that printing at home is the only option for everyone, VIP or otherwise.

Someone mentioned something about those type of souvenir tickets being given out after the gate.

Thanks for the info, Jim... But I gotta ask - why is there a $10 fee attached to print-'em-yourself tickets? :huh:

That's a good question Lola.:cool:

It's a handling fee that goes towards paying for the system and the scanners on site. So even though we are not using "postage", there are indeed hard costs associated with this system, and as you have experienced VIP entry is a bit more involved than General Admission, so the fee is slightly higher.

The whole check-in process is a bit more more involved at VIP than it is at General Camping entrances. (Not trying to speak for him, but I believe that's what Jim was getting at when he referenced the "system").

It's in the works and I really don't expect it'll be an issue.

Although I did suggest at one point that a print it yourself collector's commemorative ticket option be added.

... I got the old "crickets sound"

Ah, thanks for your answer(s) - just like to know what the extra funds are for is all... I surely enjoyed the valet parking service that was employed for VIP last year! :mrgreen:

And I do really enjoy having the actual tickets to keep - I'm glad to hear that they will be made available.
