*BTF Upgrades explained.… Many of you have had questions as to why we are offering new and improved upgrades, below are the reasons.
1. Allows us to keep general admission tickets low. Over the past 4 years we have actually lowered ticket prices. Why? because we believe that BTF is about gathering the tribes and bringing Glory to God. Its our desire to make the entry to BTF as low as possible to make it accessible to as many people as possible. By finding other ways to generate $ though upgrades we can keep general admission as low as possible.
2. Security and crowd control – every year we want to increase our festival security and functionality. We use the upgrade areas to help bring more organization to the festival.
3. Create a better overall experience – We have had many challenges with lawn chairs and pop-up tents. Because of security concerns we cannot leave them overnight (they end up blocking isle ways and exit rows for people plus the pop-up tents impede peoples line of sight. With offering them as an upgrade we then have the resources to allocate people and management to those areas so we can offer them to people who want them.
We see how at times “upgrades” can be viewed as BTF trying to “make money”, it is true that we want to manage the festival in a financially responsible way but please remember we are a 501c3 non-profit with VERY little paid to staff. In fact we are committed to 100% of tickets (including upgrade tickets), camping, and festival revenue going back into make the festival as great as possible to Glorify God.
*All monies paid to staff are fundraised or generated through sponsors.
*BTF is run by 1 full-time and 3 part-time staff members ALL other staffing involvement is volunteer (over 500 volunteers).
