The city Champagne (spelling?) and Urbana are near the venue (venue being in Urbana), the hotels are just a few blocks from the venue as well. The Venue itself is like right in the middle of University of Illinois.

You'll have a blast guaranteed. I suggest bringing a backpack if you plan on getting merch.

Hell yeah, this fest is going to RULE. I can't wait :D

One of the coolest things about this venue is that it DOES allow re-entry. I hate places that don't. There are food joints that are pretty close...same w/ gas stations if you are just lookin for some munchies.

You can avoid the meter thing if you park at the Krannert Center which is North from the Canopy Club. They have a little parking garage thing and it's really close to the venue.

Here is the link to the Canopy Club website, which will hopefully answer all of your questions about this venue. http://www.canopyclub.com/canopy.php


Oh yeah, so whoever wanted to know about the airport, we have a small one here called Willard Airport, it's about 5 miles from the venue.

Hope some of that was helpful. You guys better make it out after all of that...GEEZ! hahaha
