Hi, first time poster here.
I haven't been up to the festival since '97 I think, so I'm sure alot has changed.

4 of us are coming up this for 2017 - we are considering getting VIP passes to one of the days, but was disappointed to see they have gone up to $120.

Can I get an opinion on whether they are worth it, and what the options for chilling out are, besides the VIP lounge?

Appreciated

There are a few different threads on this forum about VIP tickets with comments by people who have bought VIP tickets so you might like to read them.

Thanks Eileen, they seem to pretty much agree with my assessment....too expensive for what you get.
We'll give it a miss.

VIP passes are great if you are not camping on site.
There are more chill area's in the general grounds now, (including a kind of burger pub)
So I think the VIP isn't as critical as it once was, but if I was cashed up, I would do it.

I do it every time. It's just a nice area that gives a little bit of respite. Not having to line up for tickets to then line up for a beer, is an advantage. But it probably is an indulgence. If you can afford it and validate it, then do it. If not, nothing lost.

There are plenty of great seating areas / marquees to sit under on the Bluesfest grounds if you need them.

It's $90 extra for single day ticket holders.. so no thanks.
