The VIP Community Thread

Postby Barracuda » Tue Jun 16, 2009 2:31 pm

Image

A dedicated thread to discuss everything VIP, and get this art of the community chatting together, after all, we'll be camping together!

Admin suggested a dedicated thread rather than a VIP section, so, would they mind stickying the thread to the top of this section instead? :pray:

Haha... Why do people find this amusing? I hadn't really thought about it! :lol:

You sign off a letter don't you?

Re VIP: I guessed you would find this thread, even if others don't. Lets wave the flag for VIP!

This isn't a 'who's going VIP' thread. This should be a ANYTHING VIP thread!

VIP

What kind of 'extra entertainment' is there going to be in the VIP area?
VIP area will have a private bar, with a catering option provided by Knebworth's own corporate entertainment people. The VIP backstage area will also host a private rock disco, giant jenga and other garden toys. I think that there will be a BBQ in there as well. There is a separate car entry route and car park for VIPS, next to the VIP campsite, which is located on a hill between the 2nd and Main stage. VIPs can enter from 3pm on Thursday. There will be and exclusive VIP t-shirt, and loads of other goodies in the goody bag TBA.

Can we have some more information about VIP registration desk - what will be required from us/rough idea of when we will be contacted re: our arrival times?
It will be at one entrance separate from the main entrance. Information will be sent out nearer the festival as to what’s required by email.


Posted here for Info.

Feels good to be VIP man.

I thought I'd spread the word to a few people i'd noticed had said they were goin' VIP

Admin has been kind enough to Sticky this thread, so we should use it!

I have no idea about the goody bag, this is my first VIP too. Hellfest 2008 has a goody bag, but that was more just a program and advertising materials.

You and your bloody t-shirts.

Bit confused about the VIP parking. We were originally told parking would be next to our tents, now we're told parking is in a car park next to the VIP camp site... so now we have to carry all our gear back and forth from the car? Not good, not good. More importantly, what if we run out of booze in the tent?? We'd have to go like all the way to the car for the next crate! :?

I doubt the backstage area will be very backstagey... When we went to Knebworth and he told us where it would be, it's roughly 50 metres to the right of the second stage if you're looking at the stage :) If it's anything like download it should be next to the artist area but I doubt we'll be seeing anyone famous :(

Not sure, but I won't expect to be rubbing shoulders with James and Lars..

It'll simply be nice if there is some good food, and slightly smaller queues at the bars. I'm interested to know more about the Rock Disco. Is this a late night thing I wonder?

and of course, giant Jenga FTW! heh

vip camp site looks pretty cool gonna be very close to mainstage! No rubbing shoulders with tallica though unless you scale a few buildings however there may be a possibility of getting a gimpse of bands while they are working there way to mainstage but not sure on that one!

on the plus side if you run out of beer you can nip down to the shops! will be a separate carpark and entrance than everyone else which is cool so you can avoid the traffic!

I guess thats my fault! I would say they are in the wrong section. VIP group or Alliances/camps are relevant to CAMPING. I didn't want mods to lock the thread saying it was in the wrong section. They sticky-ed it, so I guess they agree we are in the right place!

By all means request to have it moved, but if it's not sticky-ed, it'll disappear if people aren't posting every 5 mins!

I wasn't criticizing your thread! Just trying to justify this threads location! No offense to The Awesome Camp Mongoose! :music-rockon:

I guess both sections are suitable.
