New year, new look, new home. This year’s West Coast Weekender moves to Viejas Casino & Resort, a Four Diamond hotel and event venue uniting all the music, panels/workshops, artwork, hotel rooms, and activities together at one convenient location. Additionally, 2019 introduces a variety of other new features and options for our Weekenders.

1. VIP All Access Passes

This year we are excited to announce that a limited number of VIP All Access passes will be available! In addition to all panels and events in the Park and Oak Ballroom, passes will also include VIP entry, admission to the Poolside Sessions, access to VIP bars in the Pool Lounge, an exclusive viewing terrace for The Park, reserved seating to all panels, Weekender swag and more!

2.  Monthly payment plans available for tickets on Eventbrite

Weekenders can pay for Eventbrite tickets over time rather than all at once with Affirm financing. Guests will instantly receive tickets in an order confirmation email from Eventbrite and directly pay Affirm in fixed, monthly installments over 3 or 6 months. Just choose Affirm as the payment method during checkout, complete a quick application on their site, and get a real-time decision.

3.  More rooms and suite types

We will be allotted over 200 deluxe rooms flanking The Park and Pool area, which include three types of VIP suites exclusively reserved for Weekender guests. The Viejas Casino & Resort is a Forbes Travel Guide 4 Star and a AAA Four Diamond rated resort where guests will love the modern amenities, streamlined design and handcrafted, boutique feel.

4. RV camping available

Another new feature offered to West Coast Weekender guests will be RV camping, available at the Ma-Tar-Awa RV Park. Sitting on 133 sheltered acres of the Viejas Reservation, the Ma-Tar-Awa RV Park is less than one mile from the resort, with free shuttle service between the campground and the casino.

Indulge in the excitement and action of 2,500 slots, from casino classics to hot new games, including the addition of 1,000 amazing all new slots!
