    Sunday tickets purchased.  Flight booked.  Can't wait to see EV and Nashville!

    Can anyone that has attended this festival comment on how early you need to arrive to get close at Ed's stage?  Not sure what the scene is like. Thanks for any insight.

    I've never been to it, but we have a few things working in our favor.  Titans are at home against oddly enough Seattle with a 3:05 kickoff.  JT is Saturday night, and I think the people who want to see him may not care to see Ed.  Work the next day for most of the people there.  Sunday tickets STILL available.  I don't expect I will be on the rail, but I also don't expect near the people who will be there on Saturday either.

    I agree w all this plus significantly shorter setlist will keep some diehards away.

    ^^ Good points. I'll get there when it opens at 10:00 and check out the scene by his stage.  Im guessing other performers are on his stage throughout the day as well. Probably no advantage to arriving before 10:00.  All just a guess on my part though.

    Closest to stage is for VIP ticket holders. I don't think getting there early will hold any great advantage, unless you have VIP tix. 
  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 717
    ^^ Thanks for the info.  Do you know how many rows the VIP section occupies? 
  • 3days3days Posts: 656
    No idea, but it's a big GA section based on pictures that I've seen. Think of it as comparable to the GA pit at PJ shows.

    Unfortunately my B&B/Pilgrimage crew just had to cancel on me. So now I'm off to Ohana instead. 
    I've got a Sunday Pilgrimage pass available below cost if anyone knows someone who still needs one. I also have one for Saturday at Bourbon & Beyond.

    Eddie is now 1:25 vs the 1:15 as expected! Hoping curfew is 9 so they are going with 845 to build in 15 extra minutes. 

    JT has 1:45!

  • I am digging the fact that Ryan Adams will be on a totally different stage beforehand and Ed's will be clear for an hour or so before he goes on.  Hoping to weasel my way up front...  =)

    I'll gladly take the extra 10 minutes! It's enough for a couple more songs :)

    Not sure why JT gets 20 minutes more though...bummer

    Got wristbands in mail today! Can't wait! 
  • Got mine the other day, really excited!!  Where is everybody staying?  The wife and I and a few friends ( not really PJ fans) are staying at the Aloft in Cool Springs.
  • Does anyone have any maps or pictures that show the VIP section and how big it may be?

    My wife and I are also staying at the Aloft. How are you planning to get over to the farm? We were just planning on Lyft.

    Ubering.  Or I was looking the other day they have shuttles pretty close to where we are staying so we may look in to that.  We are not driving regardless.

    Staying at the Westin in DT Nashville.  I'm guessing Uber will be our best option.

    And now we can't go. Damnit. Gotta love overpriced electrical work. Ugh.
    2 weekend tickets available. I posted a thread in Lost Dogs.
