I'm going to pass only because VIP was more than worth it this year. Standing next to the VIP fence comfortably then looking 10 feet over at the GA crowd getting smashed in the face during FOB sealed that for me.
I would love that experience over the FOB experience I had at the NYS fair this summer. The band was so good but we had to sit in metal seats and I had to listen to 35 year old woman behind me talk about FYS who opened that they were a "warm up hipster band" because they had beards, like what.the.fuck. I finally turned around and told them they didn't belong at the show.
