This year RWB has made a few changes to the event format to better serve festival guests. VIP ticket holders will enjoy the new VIP Entrance with shorter lines and easy access to the festival grounds. The VIP Lounge adjacent to the main stage will have more seating and a larger bar area. More craft beer and wine options are being added to the VIP tasting area to offer a broader selection for VIP guests. A second VIP Lounge will has been added near the VIP tasting area to offer more seating, a full cash bar, views of the main stage and complimentary appetizers.
Based on participation and guest feedback, RWB has decided not to offer onsite camping this year. The VIP Bottle Share Party has also been eliminated from the schedule to allow more time to focus on the needs of guests during the festival.
