    Sound quality sucks here. Do your hearing and your enjoyment a favor and bring a good pair of musicians ear plugs with you. Evens the sound out nicely and won't leave you deaf. Plenty online for 10-20

    The venue is HUGE! Vans Warped Tour has a good mix of rock-esque genres! Lots to listen to for every one. Food here is damn expensive though! 6 bucks for fries!!?!? Crazy.

    If you don't mind standing, try to get general admission tickets because it is the only sure fire way to get close to the stage!

    Lawn seats are the best! Get there early and relax! Best concert venue iv been too in years!

    "$250 fine of caught tailgating. It's a city ordinance". Tailgating also is sitting in your car drinking water to avoid the heat and waiting for gates to open. Thumbs down.

    The parking's no fun...

    Place sucks to be in the lawn! The MUD PIT OF 2011 Sorry I didn't have the money to buy a seat I just wanted to see the show! Never Again!

    Victoria Elizabeth · September 25, 2011
  • Lauren S.

    Not worth it. Takes longer to get out of the parking lot after the concert than the length of the whole concert. And attendants are rude.

    Don't chug a gallon of vodka with 3 of your buddies in the parking lot thinking you will avoid paying for alcohol inside. You will only be seeing the medical office and/or the security office.

    Worst venue I've been to. Parking is a mess and employees are rude. Not recommended.

    Brandon Hughes · July 11, 2014
  • Justine

    This place is overly intense about rules. Open your water bottles in front of security and give them the bottle cap, food has to be in zip lock baggies, no umbrellas, no chairs, and you get pat down.

    Worst fucking parking situation. A million people "directing traffic" [aka sitting around doing nothing] when you get here and nobody when you leave. WTF?!

    Alexx Alexandra · June 1, 2014
  • Nicky H.

    You're only allowed to bring in lawn chairs that fold flat. If you bring one that rolls or has a cover you'll have to take it back to your car or rent a chair from the venue for $5.

    Nicky Horne · September 7, 2013
  • Collins E.

    This venue kind of sucks. It's way out of the way from Chicago proper and with few exceptions the staff doesn't seem to know what they're doing. Only recommended if you MUST see the act playing.

    Traffic's a Bitch

  • Amanda P.

    Traffic is awful when leaving. Seriously be ready to wait for awhile to get out of the parking lot when you leave! I've never sat in my car so long to get out of an event after it was over.
