Anyone have any experience with parking in the area? I've parked in the USC garages for fairly cheap before, but to my knowledge those day permits are only valid until midnight.
Do they usually do special event parking that allows for later exits for a higher price?
I would definitely avoid parking in the immediate area if at all possible and try to park near a Metro station if it is at all possible.
I'm always sketchy about parking in the USC area for a number of reasons. Usually I'll suck up and pay a hefty parking fee (like for Shrine shows), but for two days, I might do the Metro. I've never ridden the Expo line before, so is it pretty quick and painless if I ride it from Culver City?
Yes, the ride is about 20 minutes. You will pay a one time fee of $1 for a plastic card that you keep and fill with money when you want to use it. The ride will be $1.50 each way, so you can buy the card and put $6 on it at the same time and then not need to worry about dealing the machine the rest of the weekend. Just tap the cad on the little thing each time you get on the train and you are good to go. it is an above ground light rail train as well.
You guys must have super nice cars that people break into, or just really assume the areas not safe. Park on vermont at a parking meter ( which lasts all day ) for probably $5 at the most ( depending when you arrive ) and walk 10 mins to the fest.
I just think the area is going to be a huge clusterfuck during the festival and it will be much less stressful to just take the train in.
My suuuuuper nice '92 Honda Civic was broken into at a HARD Halloween event at The Shrine when I was parked in a USC parking lot.

My last car (95 honda civic) was broken in silverlake of all places. womp
The new cards are pretty. I took it a few weeks ago and it had union station on it. I think there are others too
I think parking at the venue and surrounding parking lots is $20 and its a clusterfuck getting out, Ive parked on the side streets in the area for free and walked a few blocks to the venue too. Its kinda sketch but not as bad as people think.
It all depends on if you wanna pay for parking or not.
King Krule should replace Death Grips
I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member...
I'm thinking about trading a 2 day pass for a Saturday only plus the difference in cost. I'm located in San Francisco. Message me if you're interested.
Weekend tickets released, go get em.

Lucidity, come back to me. Put all five senses back to where they're meant to be.
Woo Hoo! Now I gotta read up in here on places to stay.
Thank God. Now I just hope that they didn't OVERSELL tickets (although I'm assuming they've had these extra passes set aside knowing they'll release them later if the fest sold out).
I've never been to FYF, so I don't know how crowded it gets, but it's sounding like it'll be their most crowded year just based on the popularity its gained.
