Hi, sellquist13: In 2007 the Gold circle didn't let you meet the artist, as I had hoped. It is excellent seating, open beer-wine-soda bar, a buffet luncheon and dinner, great group of people. Just look for me, I'll be wearing a cowboy hat. LOL
It says a full bar on there. So it looks like it is going to be the same setup as in the past. But thanks for the info! I may just go ahead and purchase that because I'm going to be spending that much in food and drinks anyways. Ha.
A Gold Circle reserved ticket includes:
• A reserved seat in the first 10 rows for the main stage
• Access to exclusive **Gold Circle VIP area
• Access to festival VIP area
• Access to the rest of the Festival
• Take home souvenir seat Sunday night.
** Gold Circle reserved ticket VIP area includes complimentary bottled water and soda's, full bar + food service for additional charges and a VIP restroom area with flushable toilets, running water, sinks and mirrors.
As far as last year, we had general admission tickets. We said that if 2008 was to happen, we would look at the VIP Gold Circle tickets. Last year, at times, it could take a healthy walk and wait to use the restrooms, and some of the food lines were very long. The people we noticed in the VIP section, had their own bathrooms and the food lines were descent. This year, I'm going to go with the VIP circle. Bottom line though is do you want to be 20 feet away, or who knows how far? Either way, you'll have a great time!!
Looks like beer, wine, cocktails and food are going to be an extra charge in the Gold circle this year. They probably didn't realize how much we were going to drink and eat last year! I am hoping they offer a one time charge for the weekend, rather than cash sales only. Oh well, I still think it will be worth it for the great seats. However, don't be fooled, the line for the restrooms were terrible everywhere, including the Gold circle.
So they are really saying that the only thing the gold circles gets this year is free water and soda. We would have to PAY EXTRA for any beer, wine or food that we'd want and it's not included in our price ticket like it was last year? Last years was such a great set-up. If this is the case, we'd be getting cheated! Too bad!
I'd like to know WHY the eat & drinks like last year in the GOLD CIRCLE are not being offered this year? Will there still be the private tent/area for the people to get their food and drinks and sit to eat? What is ACTUALLY going to be so special in the Gold Circle area?
