Everyone agrees $10 for nine days of fun and great concerts is a bargain in anyone’s book, and that’s why the crowds at Wichita’s Riverfest continue to grow each year. Now, Riverfest organizers are offering a VIP experience, for yet another bargain basement price.
New this year is special VIP seating and treatment for five of the festivals headline concert acts. Check this out, the VIP tickets are just $25, less than you would pay for a nosebleed ticket at most concerts.
VIP tickets are available for:
•The Flaming Lips, 5:30 p.m., Sat., June 3: Hosted by ALT 107.3
•LoCash, 5:30 p.m., Sun., June 4: Hosted by KFDI & Aero Plains Brewery

What exactly do you get for your VIP investment?
For The Flaming Lips, LoCash, and Mavis Staples, the VIP package is labeled: Behind the Stage Party/Front of the House View. VIP ticket holders party behind the Kennedy Plaza Stage before the show, then move around to the front of the stage for the concert. There’s a private bar and VIP porta-pot access. Folding chairs will be available for those who need them, so there’s no need to haul your chair to venue.

VIP guests view the concert upstairs from the Century II balcony. No need for port-a- potties, you get running water and flushing toilets. There will also be access to a private bar.
