In addition to music, there are activities like a giant water slide and a public art contest. Visitors can check out massive sculptures across the event site - the minimum requirement is 5 feet!

The VIP passes offer guests unlimited access to the VIP Grove, an area where you can relax under umbrellas on beach chairs and couches while sipping on complimentary wine, beer and spirits and snack on free food. Plus, you can take a dip in the main stage VIP swimming pools.
