This is, by far, the best set-up.

The small stage with trees is the best one. Shade and plenty of sight lines. Smaller artist stage so never a huge crowd.

They wanted to get closer to the hipsters and they accomplished that task.
I thought logistically that this was a home run. It accommodated the crowds beautifully, lots of mature trees in the area and all without shutting down any part of Midtown or Downtown. I didn't attend but everyone I know loved it.

Do many of the other tests shut down parts of town? I've been to Sweetwater 420 a few times and Music Midtown once or twice, and I don't recall them shutting down any parts of town.

I also didn't attend Shaky Knees, as it's just not my scene, but the people I know who did go seemed to love it.

No, of course not. Nice to show our inclusiveness, though.

Update:

Went to Shaky Beats yesterday and the new location isn’t bad but I miss Centennial.

The stages were farther apart and the skyline not as visible.

Sound wasn’t as high either likely due to the homes around.

This location will “work” but I hope it goes back to the old spot next year.

Shaky Knees was loud as hell. Like I had to move to the back because it was so loud.

Was at Shaky Beats this past weekend. It's really loud. You can't really get any louder without blowing out the eardrums of people in the front.
