last year I was able to upgrade my fun2 tickets to PIP. Will that be an option this year as well? How do I do this thing?

    yeah they've mentioned that this will be an option later, probably when fun3 tickets come out.

    I'm waiting for the upgrade option to come up. I need me some PIP treatment this time around (especially if they have good beer this year).

    Dear ground(ctrl),
    it seems we can buy, but not upgrade to, PIP tickets. when will this be remedied? because I don't want to miss out.
    hugs and kisses,

    just got the upgrade...purchase your PIP pass and call 877-463-2875 with your PIP order number and they'll refund your initial purchase.

    The refund call went pretty smooth and I hate talking on the phone. However, the person on the other end was nice and got it done quickly. I guess its not as easy as just hitting a button which would have been nice.

    Can I get more details on what the PIP Pass consists of? Like what does "your own chill spot at the shore" mean? Is that like a backstage pass or something? Trying to decide if it's worth paying twice the price. Thanks!

    The big perks in the past were; A "PIP" area with Free Beer, and non-crowded clean bathrooms and Food. The food has taken a couple years to get dialed in, however FFF is stepping it up for 2011 just not able to lock it all in for the announce this week, should be giving more PIP info shortly.

    Yea hoping for sum mods 2 the plan. Beer food ect. Cuz will have 2 say since there really wasn't a price break on being a "earlybird" from a "late bird". Black stage is looking really solid tho! Kinda hoping they mayb will be some more good adds like funfunfun is know for. Not cryin but kinda makes ya wonder bout the hype? But will say thanks greg for letting me know whatz up so I didn't miss the boat. Urock bro.

    Full PIP package details have been added, it took a hot minute to lock everything in but alas we can shine a glorious light on what the PIPs will be getting for 2011. You are correct that upgrading from early bird to PIP cancels out the discount, think of it as going from welfare to boss status, there is a premium to be boss.
