Is paying for VIP at Jazz fest worth the extra money? My 65 year old father is coming with his girlfriend, they don't go to festivals. Standing is not an issue he just keeps asking me "Is VIP worth the extra money?" I was planning on going the first week, if there is any big reason to go the 2nd please let me know.

Thanks Jam Cruisers!!

I've never done VIP, but there are more than one "VIP" options at JF. Some you get seating in the back or on the side, some you can be right in front of the stages. I think they all offer some sort of free food and drinks. If you are mainly concerned about seating / good spots in front of the stages you have to ask yourself which shows you'll go see. If you are interested in the main headliners it might be worth it, cause those stages can get really crowded and its hard to get a good spot late. If you see yourself catching shows in the tents you will get decent seats to most performances if you show up towards the end of the preceding set.

As to which weekend: Are you more into the day or night shows? Which bands do you want to see most? How many days do you have in total?

we were giving some vip tix's a cpl of years ago,,,,it was great for seating in the tents, which tend to get very crowed when it rains or is wat too hot and sunny out
