Exactly where is the separate VIP entrance and how does it not become a parking lot? We crawled along for 5 hours last year to get to regular camping. How do they keep the VIP entrance clear? :mellow:

fewer cars , higher staff to car ratio ?

actually i don't know how, i just know it works.
VIP at B'port has moved around over the years, but it's always been by the school, outside of the site.
i think we get 2 or 3 people inspecting each car, so that may be part of it too.
my only non vip was @ ILCC, fun times - getting to know new friends.

accessible camping is right next to VIP, but we don't get to go through their secret entrance, I know roughly where it is because some of the security folks checking late arrivals were stationed right next to my camp, nice people :)

it has been reported that some VIP'ers have spent the entire weekend trying to find the secret entrance. this really helps to speed things up for those in the know. ;)

seriously though, the entrance is rather low-key and historically not very well marked...better marked last year but still easy to miss
dont let them tell you to get in line for general camping! one year we kept driving in a loop cuz people with flags had NO IDEA where vip was :lol: :bang:

but for the past coupla years it has been in a school parking lot...just follow signs for gotv and keep an eye PEELED for the sign for vip check-in...its a big tent in the rear of a lot next to a school...you park in that lot and get in line to get your credentials, then you get your vehicle in line to be searched
just keep in mind to pack your coolers in an accessible area in your car so its easily openable to speed up the search :wink:
and dont forget a fire extinguisher if you have a grill or gas lantern! :spank:

good luck and see ya there!

ask every lady who helps you who "luvsdaisies" is and once you know who she is, tell her that she rocks! :bang:

if i get my way she is gonna feel like a superstar by noon on thursday :pimp: :clapping:

Must of been 100 signs for it last year...look for the main entrance to the park, turn right for about a minute, park, get asked to move to another spot, park, walk to the tent, back to your car and wait for the golf cart escort.

Nod, directions will be emailed to you in July once traffic flow has been finalized.

Please, once you exit the highway... PUT YOUR TRAVEL PASS IN YOUR WINDOW! Traffic team will be watching for it, and if you happen to miss the turn off for VIP, they will notice it right away.

As for keeping the VIP entrance clear, of course its a bit congested at 8 am, but we have a team of aces ready to get you in and settled! All you need is a good cup of coffee (for me of course) and a little love and patience. :angel:

do you know something i dont? :huh:
where is there good coffee in downtown bridgeport? :dunno:
a hot cup of decent coffee would make me SO HAPPY waiting in line on thursday morning :dance:
i often have thought that someone should get permission to vend coffee in that lot
they would be greatly appreciated and make a lot of money :clapping:

Who said I would buy her a coffee in Bridgeport? Jimbo has been known to make some of the finest coffee in Rhode Island and just might fill a thermos of it. In fact, thank you tyedydee, that is EXACTLY what I'm going to do. If I meet you in the VIP lot you are welcome to a cup of my brew.

I believe the location was announced on the radio a few times on Thursday morning as well, but it was a secret station to which nobody listens.

I just ordered a vip ticket and the link worked for me

Edit: I provided the link(that works) but it seems like someone edited it from my post. Life is too short to wonder why my post was edited...I'm prolly pretty sure that link did not contain any classified stuff....ah maybe the dashboard pass and that will get someone rejected at the gate.

depending on your level of modesty, the red kind and rain boots are not mutually exclusive at Camp Velcro.

how do you feel about chicken wings +/or duct tape ?

I sure do miss Nateva...My son and I had a great time. We camped with some Canadians and have kept in touch. They are going to Bonnaroo and will be staying with us for the weekend! That's why I love Festivals, you meet people and sometimes they stay in your life. Maybe I can talk them into coming to Vibes!
