What is the difference between a festival and lawn seat?

Lawn seats attract a mix of families, music lovers, residents, and visitors who set up blankets and chairs together to enjoy a casual and relaxing classic Cape Cod summer experience. Festival seats are pre-arranged chairs that have a wonderful view of stage and Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. Note that these seats aren’t numbered or assigned, and are located directly behind the VIP section.
