I'm working on planning a trip for my friends 40th birthday to the festivl in 2014 from Jan 23-27. We will have anywhere between 4-6 individuals. I've already research place in Park City Old town to stay and hope to have someting booked by end of Feb. My question is around the festival activities. The Sundance website has several different packages and wanted to get an understanding for the venue access. Do you need venue access to experience Sundance? This really increases the cost and we'd like to catch a few films and experience the night life without breaking the bank. For tickets will it be best to just try and do day of tickets or advance tickets. If advance, will one person be able to buy a group of tickets to the same film? Thanks for any guidence, as I'm trying to estimate for the group total cost.
