    You can bring a factory-sealed water bottle, so next time you're on the floor, you won't pass out like last time.

    Giant auditorium ruins sounds. Terrible acoustics. Only go here if it's a must see act, don't go into the stands or else you won't be able to see anything. Park on 9th for free, the lots rip you off.

    Passion Pit was amazing and Matt and Kim would have made the show worthwhile all by themselves @passionpit @mattandkim

    This legendary venue has hosted Deadmau5, Avicii, Kaskade, and many more. Plenty of room to move, with bathrooms on both upper and lower levels.
