Ultimate Live Music Experiences
Roll Like A Rockstar Bonnaroo:
The Skinny: There are very few, if any, VIP packages like this. Quite frankly, this is the closest any mere
concert goer can get to reaching Mick Jagger-style rockstar status. With this monster "Roll Like a Rockstar" package,
you and seven of your friends get special access throughout the festival site, a private tour bus with accommodations
for up to 8 people, access to an exclusive main stage and second stage viewing area, on-site Gourmet catering, 24-
hour golf cart service - the list goes on and on. Bonnaroo has always been an innovative festival, and with this package
they have really outdone themselves.
Recommended For: Anyone that would take you along as one of their 8 guests, or your buddy who's getting
hitched next summer. Bachelor party, anyone?
The Skinny: The String Cheese Incident know how to put on a party. From Hulaween, to Big Summer Classic,
to their throwdowns at Horning's Hideout - you can always count on SCI to show you a good time and surprise the
heck out of you. This year, they are taking their rapturous antics to Mexico for a five-day long fiesta at the Hard Rock
Hotel in Riviera Maya. Snagging any room at this destination festival will be a blast, but if you go for the Rock Platinum
Sky Terrace 2-Bedroom Suites, you will be able to literally see the stage from your balcony.
Recommended For: Any SCI fan that lives East of the Mississippi. The days are short and the nights are
freezing cold. By February the snow will be in full effect and a trip to Mexico for an once in a lifetime Incident is exactly
what the doctor ordered.
Jam Cruise 12:
The Skinny: JamCruise is a 10-year veteran of the destination festival domain. 2013 has taken JamCruise to
epic proportions, with a lineup featuring over 30 different artists - it is hard to argue that this ultimate live music
experience isn't "quite possibly the best cruise in the world." There are theme nights, yoga, private island shows - this
festival literally has it all.
Recommended For: Any of the JamCruise "lifers" and "repeat offenders" that you know. That is, if they haven't
already made their accommodations.
Coachella Safari Tent:
Price: $6500 for 2
The Skinny: If you've ever been to Indio for a festival, you know that it gets hot during the days. Really, really
hot. If you and a friend dish out the $3250 each for the Coachella Safari Tent, not only will you get exclusive access to
the festival, comfortable queen size beds - but you get the holy grail of festival desires, air conditioning!
Recommended For: The friend you have that always makes excuses about why they are "too old" to go
Mountain Song At Sea:
The Skinny:David Grisman, Steep Canyon Rangers, Trampled by Turtles are only the first three names on the
bill of this bluegrass extravaganza taking place early this February. "Bluegrass floats" from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico
and then on to Key West, FL. There are workshops, Q&A's with the artists, a casino on board, and the opportunity
to listen to that high lonesome sound on the wide open sea.
Recommended For:The biggest fan of bluegrass in your circle. This festival is a dream to anyone who
answers the question "what kind of music do you like" with the answer "anything with a banjo..."
Hangout Fest Super VIP:
The Skinny: Although the lineup of Hangout will not be announced until early 2014, the overall experience of
this festival is tempting enough to buy tickets blindly. All of the festivities take place on the beautiful beaches of Golf
Shores, AL. Pictures of past events show fans lounging in pools, hot tubs or with their feet in the sand raging to Tom
Petty, String Cheese, Paul Simon and dozens more.
Recommended For: Anyone. The festival is well organized, in the best location, and usually boasts the most
epic and diverse lineup.
