Re: *** Offical SPAC 2019 Thread ***

Excuse my ignorance here regarding Ballsfest, looking to check it out this year. Will they sell tickets online for the event or is it something you purchase just N2 at the Park?

Thanks all!

    discounted tickets are available online during presale, which I recommend.

    I have never flown in to SPAC but Albany is only like 20 mins away so I would think that is the best/closest option.

    Yes, it is.

    I live in Clifton Park, which is between the Albany Airport and SPAC/Saratoga.

    Fly into Albany and then it's about a 30+ minute drive, straight up the Northway, to SPAC.

    Shoot me a PM if you have any questions. Good luck!

    At one point a couple weeks ago, the Saratoga Casino hotel was $400 total for 2 nights. It's now $900.

    Saratoga Casino Hotel is a fantastic spot to stay. Free shuttle to and from the concerts. Very happy staying there for the '18 shows

    Iíve done Airbnb past three years. Get 4-6 people and can find some very nice and affordable places. For 2 nights Iíve found some places were it ends up being 150-200 per person for the weekend.

    The biggest issue with these places are the usual cancellation fees. Shit happens and plans change so make sure you understand how it all works. Not many people are willing to pay $200 today for a house in July.

    I found a really great rate at the Hilton right there in town but it's non refundable. Life is a gamble right?

    That is fair but I have had good luck booking a place at a reasonable price in March. After the shows are announced and hotels booked. And if you look around some places do allow free cancellation up to a certain point. But yes anyone who is considering make sure you know the ins and outs of the place you are looking at. But for me has been nice getting a house tht is usually cheaper per night than a hotel. Again depending on the house and how many people are going.

    Tickets were $65 presale I think $80 day of

    They're $35 for under 21 (strictly enforced and self policed) or Designated drivers

    This is the only licensed tailgate party with alcohol in the park. They have, in the past, confiscated and ticketed anyone with alcohol (strictly prohibited in all NY State Parks).

    Ballsfest has full service open bar starting at like 1-2 pm. Plus, all sorts of burgers, hotdogs, and other barbecue type items- all you need to do is show up. and it goes for a really good cause.

    Yes people like to do their own thing, and that's fine. And like all things in our society, there's haters. If you're a hater of ballsfest, FUCK YOU
