VIP Experience

With hot entertainment comes a hot VIP experience! This year, do Hot August Night right! Skip the lines and skip the crowd! A VIP ticket grants you access to the exclusive VIP tent at the DDD Main Stage. This includes an hour long meet and greet with Wayne Toups, a sideline view of Lionpawlooza, one wine or beer walk pass and an event poster. You’ll also be provided with seating, a lot of space to dance, a misting fan, shade, exclusive port-o-potty access and a direct line to the beer booth so you’ll never have to stand in the crowd! This package has all you need to keep you COOL this Hot August Night.

There are only 60 seats available for this VIP experience and the first 20 of you will get a pre-sale price! Pricing for the first 20 tickets sold will be: $60 for one ticket or $100 for two tickets! Get your seat before it’s gone!

Tickets can be picked up the night of the event, anytime between 2:00-6:00pm at the Hot August Night headquarters in the Guerin Insurance Agency (next to Brady’s Restaurant) located at 104 SW. Railroad Ave.
