SunFest's VIPee Is the Best $5 Your Urethra's Ever Spent
Bathrooms for the 1 percent.
It's the one part of music festivals we can all agree suck: the bathrooms. Whether you're squatting in a hot porta-potty or waiting in a concrete bathroom for 30 minutes for a stall to open up, small bladders and big concerts don't mix.
And while SunFest might not have solved the issue, the West Palm Beach festival has certainly provided an intriguing option.
Meet the VIPee bathrooms.
That's right, drink it in. Actually, don't drink anything. That's kind of gross.
If you have $5 and a stomach full of Coors Light, you can afford this VIP section. Once you pay a $5 fee to get into the VIPee, you receive a wristband and can enter back anytime nature calls.
A portion of the proceeds from the VIPee bathrooms goes to the Palm Beach County Food Bank. But if that ain't enough to get you reaching for the nearest Abe Lincoln, take a look inside this nervous-pooper's paradise.
It's a fast and furious way to flush.
Here's one of the two stalls in the men's bathroom. See that thing in the bottom left corner that looks like a gas pedal? That's a foot flush.
That's right. No more contaminated fingers for you. This bad boy lets you dispose of the evidence with nothing but the sole of your shoe. When you're in the VIPee, you don't make it rain; you make it flush.
And what exactly are you flushing down that bad boy? The good stuff.
Easy on your bottom.
This isn't any old public bathroom toilet paper that will disintegrate when you even look at it. This stuff is soft. Probably softer than what you use at home.
The only thing that could possibly make this a better restroom experience is if Geoffrey from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air climbed out from behind the toilet to wipe your bum while giving you sage advice.

There's a lot of ways to spend money at a music festival, and just about everything is upcharged to insane prices. But a clean, readily accessible bathroom? That might be something concertgoers are willing to pay for.
