Guest Area Pass 20 January 2013 16:46 (permalink)
Hi Guys,
 
Forgive me if this has been mentioned before but i had a look and couldn't see it. So being a download newbie, my question was, is the Guest Area Pass worth spending the money on? Ive read up and seen the benefits but having never been camping or at a festival before I'm wondering if its that much better than just the normal camping area? Is there anyone who has bought this previously and would they recommend it and why?
 
Cheers

      I personally wouldn't ever go again without one But I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of having somewhere to go and chill and sit down with a beer, and decent toilets, better choice of booze, no tokens, etc

        Sounds good do you know if it's far from the arena? and if it gets overcrowded. thanks!

          You're not getting the Guest Area Pass confused with RIP camping are you??
          The Guest Area Pass only allows you into the bar area in the arena...NOT the RIP campsite. If you buy a RIP ticket (£405) you get VIP camping/Weekend Arena Ticket & Guest Area access included. The Guest pass is around £90 I think but as I said, it only gets you into the chilled out bar area whilst your in the Arena. Is it worth it? Well we've tended to use the area less n less as the years have gone by but that's not to say it isn't worth it. As PolytheneGirl says, it's a nice chilled out area but I doubt I'd now pay the extra if I went back to Standard Camping but that shouldn't sway you...You should try it and decide for yourself :-)

                  I reckon i'll end up getting one, seems like a decent place for a beer and a burger if there are no bands on you want to watch.

                    How does it work? do you get a different wristband for the 3 day guest area pass?

                      I Think it's an additional wristband, you'll get a camping, arena & Guest Wristband but I'm not entirely sure as you just get a single wristband in RIP!

                        You get a hot ticket sent out to you before the festival and exchange it onsite for another wrist band and it normaly gets 4 days acess as they opened the guest area on the thursday last year

                          Hello
                          This is my first year with hot ticket just a not RIP. Do you know if  hot ticket people can use the entrance at the side that goes straight into the guest area?

                                For VIP camping?
                                 
                                You need to head to west car park and the campsite itself is located just before disabled camp so follow directions for there when you get out your car.
                                 
                                If you mean the entrance to the arena for the guest area it is located at the right hand side of the stage when you are looking at main stage in the arena or alternatively you can walk past the main arena entrance and follow the path down the site of the VIP campsite itself which will take you to the other entrance to the hospitality/guest area
