Ther is only " one event " It last for 7 days 24 hours a day. The only problem is, you will not have time to take it all in. Man has to sleep on and then.

Your ticket gets you into the event, and everything officially provided. Since most of the events and theme camps are done by individuals or groups it's up to them whether you get to participate.

Where did you hear of this "all-access pass"?

Amen. Try going into Gigsville [official motto: "We're all assholes here!"] when they are having the Great Canadian Beaver Eating Contest as a single male, and you'll be run out on a rail. Even if you have a date of the opposite sex, you'll probably be treated like shit and told to leave. Now, personally I don't think all Gigsvillians are assholes, and that might be a theme to keep others from wanting to join their camp, but if you're looking for inclusion, look most anywhere else. Your ticket will not get you into their little ghetto.

Dr P:

Exactly the sort of example I was thinking of. I'd like to know where swaa heard this; sounds like someone was stringing him along. Like that phoney Travelocity listing for a custom BM package with catered meals and reserved seating at the burn.

Probably the only "all access" guarantee would be to be Larry Harvey. Or an attractive unattached bisexual woman (although I don't know if that would get you in Jiffy Lube?)

There's a guy who makes "All Access" laminates every year, that may be the cause of some confusion.

It's a joke hon - there is no all access, there is no backstage. There are public and private areas, that's all.

Hey, Why don't you just make you're own, and make a bunch to give out to friends and just plain ol' gift them to people you don't know. Just a thought.

accessably,

Gigsville

I've met some folks from Gigsville, off-playa, and they were very cool. Maybe being an asshole was part of their art?

Now about this Great Canadian Beaver Eating Contest- What was that?
