...I got a vip ticket from my company to go to Bonnaroo, I will be traveling with a non vip guest. But I was wondering, Is bonnaroo a strictly camping festival? Is my car parking included with the ticket? Or do I have to purchase a place to camp seperately?Your ticket includes car parking and camping, almost everyone camps on site.
I am a long time Lollapalooza veteran and x2 Coachella Veteran but I am embarking to the Roo' for my first time this year. About how big are your camp sites?Glad you are coming to 'roo, if you've handled Coachella, you shouldn't have a problem w/ 'roo, just keep in mind it can be HOT. Anyways, if you drive in you camp in front or in back of your ride. So you generally have an area about the width of your vehicle and ~13-16 ft deep. You can make friends w/ your neighbors and combine campsites. It's a little more relaxed from how I've heard Coachela is.
I saw your blog post on "Bonnaroo survival" and I was wondering: 1. How old the post is, because I was first wondering 2. if you are allowed to just bring your own tents? I'm wondering this because I don't have $700 to rent one of theirs, and I am content with the one I already have. If so, where do you set up such tents? Do you have to get a "campsite" pass to bring your own tent, and if so how much would that cost?The Survival Guide was first written around 2006 but I've kept it pretty well updated with current info. I know it looks a little old but I still code my html (mostly) by hand. You absolutely do not have to rent one of their tents, very few people do. There isn't a special campsite pass, the regular pass covers camping. The way it works, if you are driving in, is they tell you where to park and then you have a camping space (just a piece of field) either in front or behind your vehicle where you can pitch your tent. If you want to (most people don't, I do) you can haul your gear to the tent only area which will probably be closer to the stage area and camp there.
I was AWOL from my email for a while, I'm trying to get caught back up, if I didn't get back to you and you still have a question, shoot me another email and it will go to the top of the pile.
