BEST TIP: Parking option
There are two entrances to the concert venue. I discovered the one last week that is east on Olive Blvd. of the main entrance to Faust Park. It's usually blocked. Going in there, you can park on the grass at the back of the concert hill. Much closer to epicenter.
Otherwise, unless you arrive very early, the main entrance to the park and its lots are typically so full that you have to walk a much longer way to the concert. This longer walk is on a paved area though, if you need that.
