    They usually get an hour. I am sure they will do a lot more than just that record. They play so much of it during their normal sets anyway.

    Tix purchased. I've been so far down the rabbit hole of house and techno the last few years. This fest is going to be an artistic cleanse for me.

    I assume the after party situation is similar to Lolla? Lots of little shows spread out around town?

    This is going to be the fest of the year in the States. If I could swing ATP Iceland I would do that but this is right up there. How is parking at this event? Is it like Pitchfork where you park in the surrounding neighborhood or do they have designated parking lots? Do many people bike to and from the park? I keep reading that its in a questionable neighborhood for safety at night.

    If I hadn't already used up all my vacation days for this year, and if it wasn't in Chicago....

    I just had to look at the lineup and see what I'll be missing!

    Parking is absolutely dreadful. Worst parking of any fest I've ever been to. There are ZERO paid lots within 2 miles of the park. There are ZERO el stations within more than a mile of the park. Public transport (bus) options are few and shitty. You will either have to rely on city street parking or you will be walking a considerable distance if you decide not to drive. If you arrive early in the day (say...before 1PM), parking within a mile is OK, but as the fest fill throughout the day you will be screwed. If you arrive after 4PM, you'll be paying someone to park in their driveway (and hoping that the person selling you the spot actually owns the house). I know this reads like doom/gloom, but I have driven the last couple of years and managed to find spots, but I'm always there before 2PM. It can be done, but generally speaking, it sucks.

    Also...not to add more scare to things, if you're going to park, stay North, East, or South of the festival grounds. You don't want to be walking West of the grounds at midnight back to where your car may (or may not) be located.

    Oh, I am glad to read this information. My girlfriend and I started looking at AirBnB options last night. So, we should not stay near the festival then?

    If you stay downtown, be aware it will be impossible to catch a cab near the festival grounds at that time of night. They just don't run cabs out there. If you call them, they'll say that maybe they'll come, but they won't. When I went last year, the GF and I had to walk about 1.5-2 miles east or north of the fest to a better neighborhood to catch a cab every night. If I were to do it again, I would probably either rent a car or stay somewhere relatively close. There aren't a lot of lodging options nearby, most that are had bad reviews, but I did see one or two east of the fest about 1.5 - 2 miles that didn't seem too bad.

    I can't comment on the lodging situation other than to echo GBVF's note that there really aren't any hotels in that part of town. As for AirBnB, you might be able to find a residence that is close enough for you to comfortably get to/from the fest and stay in a safe environment. If you do that, though, your other options (restaurants, going out to clubs after the fest, etc...) are limited. You can't just "pop downtown" to go to Alinea or TGIFriday's for dinner for the same reason that you can't easily stay downtown and get to/from the fest.

    One option that many people utilize is to drive (or stay) "close" and then bike the last couple of miles (if I were arriving after 4PM, I would park 3 miles East of the fest and bike the rest of the way). If you stay in a reasonable hotel or an AirBnB that is in a neighborhood that presents you with more non-fest options, you might consider securing a bike to get to/from the fest. (Note: NOT Divvy). There is a huge spot to lock bikes (safe) right across the street from the fest.

    the parking situation will be nuts. Can't imagine driving there. Cabs will be the easiest way to get there, but leaving...I have no idea. I'd say busing to a CTA line stop. but even that will be a cluster fuck if you leave with everyone else.

    The park itself is great though. Its really big with plenty of room.

    haha, wow...so it looks like walking is what everyone will be doing. It sucks the organizers don't work with the city to provide extra buses. Maybe they will this year??

    I wouldn't recommend staying near the festival, unless you know the area really well.

    I believe that what most people dependent upon public transport do is walk to/from the subway/el stop. It is about 2k from the Division el (on the Blue Line) to park entry.

    Great, thanks for all the tips! I am going to be spending a couple days on either side of the festival, so I'd like to stay somewhere that is close to cool stuff. I don't mind walking a mile or two too and form the festival.

    I will be at the Denver Riot Fest. Chicago's lineup is awesome, yeah, but Denver is less spendy which is important to me this year. And I'll still get The Cure, which is the important thing.

    I recommend hitting up Kuma II for anything trying hit the burger place up while in Chicago. They just opened it with in the past couple years. I'm sure the orignal will be slammed all weekend.

    What is the size of this bad boy in Chicago? Seems like a lot of hassle for a festival. Line-up looks great, but it seems all the hassle around it could easy buzzkill the weekend. Made In Amercia--despite the cheesiness of the fest (promotion wise), is very easy to navigate and is worth the price, but just curious about this fest in general.

    Speaking of, I wonder if the set will include a lot from The Top, The Head On The Door and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me since they did announce plans to do a trilogy tour. Saw the last one at the Beacon and what can I say--it was fucking great.

    Apparently Primus did the same thing the Orwells did and posted a Denver poster a few days ago with some more names on the bill. Slint, Bad Suns, and Modern Baseball are the added names.
