I've been reading alot online about Musikfest. I can't find anywhere that shows exactly where these stages are set up. Can anyone steer me to where to find out?

Also...How does Musikfest affect traffic and parking for locals? Should I expect to have a hard time getting in and out of Behtlehem that week? Should we expect for our residential streets and parking spaces to be over run with visitors?

Here you go! Musikfest 2010 - Aug. 6-15 - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania - Maps and Directions (http://www.musikfest.org/info/map.asp - broken link) I don't think daytime traffic is too bad during the week but nights for anyone in the area of the platz's has got to be a real pain and the weekends are just plain bad. I know that some local's leave because they dislike it so much, but I'm sure that other's just figure out way's to deal.

I am pretty much unaffected that week, unless I need to cross Fahy or get to the library. You should not expect parking issues up near Calypso--people will park on the streets of downtown and up Lehigh Street a bit. There's also shuttles to parking lots.

Some of the locals (I have family in the area of Musikfest) call it "Musik Pest". It does get overrun and residents have trouble parking. Near Calypso isn't bad, but I know it can get parked full at least up to 6th Ave. sometimes.

It is called MusikMess and lost its luster years ago. All it does is line Jeff Parks fat pockets as he exploits volunteers who foolishly work for free. MusikMess needs to become a for profit enterprise and moved to a field.
