    I'm not a SPAC pro, but that would be a hard no for me. Unless drunk underage kids are who you want your kids to be around.

    If you got to the back of the lawn, you'll be fine, but you won't have a view of the stage. You'll have to rely on the screens they have set up to see.

    I believe we sat outside of that area one time for a Phish show and acted like hooligans lol. Respectable hooligans.

    Booked a little cheap cabin off VRBO about 3 miles away. Seemed nice and easy. Will hardly be there, so just need a place to sleep and shower. I'm assuming there will be uber/lyft/cab access. Never been to SPAC before, so should be fun.

    It gets messy with ubers, but they are available. If you book/booked a hotel on the main street (Route 9/Broadway), it is walkable if you're willing to commit to a ~30 minute walk (depending of course where your hotel is), maybe a bit more.

    1st time heading to Spac. If i request pit tickets and check the box to opt out of lawn, if warehouse can't put me in pit, they may put me in either orchestra or balcony, correct? Just want to be inside so want to select best option for that.

    Yep, it lists pit as your first preference, then will theoretically give you whatever is “best available” after that.

    Thanks very much! Excited to make a trip to Spac, 1 of the big 3 and see how it compares to Gorge.

    God help me...I've requested premium tix both nights (with the option turned on that if I don't get selected for premium that I want to be considered for regular tix - no lawns), and I've also requested regular tix both nights (no lawns). So 4 separate requests, with a crazy high price tag!

    Two more questions:

    1) I made selections for reserved seats because I don't want pit. If I change my selections to pit, does that give me extra chances to be confirmed? I guess I'd be able to trade pits for reserved seats if I do end up with them.

    2) "Priority Selection". SPAC is my only stop this tour. Does it matter which of the 4 requests I put the selection on?

    Thanks!
