If you want to go wild this summer, Rock Gone Wild is the place to be. With over 50 bands on two stages and campground parties going all night long, even the most insatiable rock appetite will be satisfied. But if you really want the ultimate rock and roll experience, you need to be in the Sinners Lounge. The Sinners Lounge is the first of its kind to be featured at an American rock festival. It is not your average festival VIP experience — the Sinners Lounge at Rock Gone Wild will offer an up-close look at the sort of debauchery that rock fans only dream of seeing at a rock festival.

Limited only to 500 ticket holders and rock stars, the Sinners Lounge will place the avid fan in the midst of the rock and debauchery experience, in an all-inclusive night club setting. Glowing walls, leather couches, nightly champagne fountains, appetizers, and cocktail waitresses dressed to theme each night are just the beginning of this all-inclusive lounge. Want an open bar with liquor, cocktails, martinis, shooters and more booze than a tour bus in the '80s? Check. Want to be entertained by dancers and acoustic performances by special guests? Check. Want to mingle with the bands that rocked your world just hours ago? Check. Want a view of the backstage mayhem while you do it all? Check. Go Platinum at Rock Gone Wild '09 to enjoy this all-inclusive package along with seating in the first 10 rows, buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner, beer, soft drinks and more.
