What are y'alls thoughts on the regular pass ($30) versus the VIP pass ($60)?
Might be nicer in some ways, but for a 4 hour session, $30 seems to me like enough to pay already. I think I'll be busy enough, and wouldn't get that much added benefit from the additional $$.
I've never been to the Raleigh fest, but is the afternoon session generally preferable, like the Durham fest (less drunks, more beer availability)?
I've not been either. And even though the Durham one is only a couple miles from my house, and people on this forum are well aware of my distaste for wasting gas (polution, global warming, dependence on foreign oil, etc...), I'm going to give the Raleigh one a try, because of my displeasure of the mud-bowl potential of the DAP. Also, I'm guessing that like Durham, the day session will be less rowdy (I prefer less), and there will be fewer beers that have already run out. Daylight will be nice, too. Hopefully it won't be raining, but I think Moore Square can handle wet better that DAP.
Tix for all sessions still available on-line and as of Friday at outlets.
Tix are also now available at Sam's in Durham. Cash only is my understanding.
