A Complete Guide to Summer Concert VIP Packages

Beyonce "The Formation World Tour"

Enough money can buy you five minutes with your favorite celebrity this summer — if you’re able to snag a VIP concert ticket, that is. VIP packages like Drake‘s also include a Summer Sixteen car freshener, foam finger, incense holder, and candle — all for a cool one-grand. Then there’s the opportunity for an awkward photo-op with Britney Spears or a selfie with Selena Gomez. Plus, at festivals like Governors Ball and Bonnaroo, you can pay for all the things we normally take for granted, like air-conditioned bathrooms and well, shade. Of course, it’s also all about the exclusive merch, too. Here’s how high society will be enjoying concerts this summer.
