    Ticket booth on the South entrance opens at 5p, so don't feel like you have to trek on the side of the (dangerous) gravel road to get to the North box office. Also, pregaming while in line is a MUST!

    A bit of a throwback, Merriweather is a treat, especially when the weather is ideal. Under the roof is best. Plenty of food and drink vendors. It feels like a park turned into concert venue.

    Without a doubt, "The Pit" is the best place to enjoy a show here. It's never too crowded and the acoustics are EPIC. Ticket price is fairly comparable as well.

    Bring in 5$ footling subs to avoid the $15 chicken tenders. You can bring water too of any size, so I suggest bringing a gallon. Especially in 85 degree weather in October! It's great !
