Hart Plaza is a historic waterfront landmark arena, the massive park spans about 14 acres which is plenty of room for the tens of thousands of fans that grace the city. A massive VIP area is erected featuring two private bars, covered seating areas, hammocks, cushy couches, and clean bathrooms. Let’s not forget the masseurs that are present to loosen up those tense muscles from all that dancing. Outside the VIP is host to an expansive ring of food, clothing, and beverage vendors that are centrally located from all the stages. This year featured a massive Biergarten with a major selection of craft beers… a treat to say the least. The quality of food was bumped up from fried carnival fare to some pretty tasty gourmet food truck options – personal favorite; Mac Shack, featuring gooey, authentic mac and cheese.
