The entertainment lineup has included heavy hitters like: Rise Against, Iggy and the Stooges, The Offspring, Elvis Costello and Coheed and Cambria. They also recently added Andrew W.K., Dead Sara, Hot Water Music, Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, the Adicts, Minus the Bear, Pegboy and many more.

Bus: The #70 Division Bus, #72 North Bus and the #52 California Bus stop right outside of the grounds and you’ll be mere steps away from an entrance.
Train: If you feel like hoofing it, the Damen and Division stops on the Blue Line are about a 15-20 minute walk from the park. You can also hop on the aforementioned #70 or #72 bus from either of those stops for an extra $0.25 transfer.
Parking is available around the park grounds and streets in the surrounding neighborhoods, though it may be limited. Be careful to not park on zoned streets because the City will ticket you.
