    Going! Lots of good stuff in there... first time the lineup has compelled me to buy a full weekend ticket. Need the day by day to come out so I can decide whether I can miss most of Sunday though, friends are trying to get me to ride the North Shore Century that day.

    Should be pretty easy, you're out of walking distance though. There is a bus that runs down Roosevelt as well as the CTA Pink line stop just south of the park. It's about four miles from downtown so Uber/Lyft is the way to go if public transportation isn't your thing.

    I'll already be there that weekend for Cubs vs Cards. Would really like to see NIN and QOTSA, but kind of want to hold out until I can see them on their own tours and not a fest.

    Really want to know the day breakdown. Hopefully TVOTR and NIN are the same day.
