You've got your tickets, you've cleared your schedule for this weekend: now you just have to figure out how to make your way over to Union Park so the festivities can commence. Luckily, as in years past, there are a quite a few transportation options available to fest attendees.

If you're driving, your best bet for parking is Standard Parking's lot at 1640 W. Jackson Boulevard, four blocks south of the festival grounds. This year it's offering discounted parking rates for the festival weekend; we suggest you reserve a spot in advance by heading over to Click and Park.

Public transportation
Frequenters of the ever-reliable CTA can easily reach the fest by bus or train. If you're taking the El, Union Park is just off the Ashland stop on the Green Line. If going by bus, catch the #9 Ashland and disembark at Ashland and Lake.

Finally, if you're coming by bicycle, fixed-gear or otherwise, you'll be able to park your eco-trendy ride in a designated area on the festival grounds free of charge.
