So the trick seems to be not giving up. With SPAC night 1 in 2018 I wasnít able to get tickets after getting N2. After waiting 15 minutes and trying again, I got within the first 10 rows behind pit at face value. Sometimes cards get declined or they release small pockets of more. Iíve had this happen after checking an hour after the sale time.

    I'll definitely try...no breath holding though. Still hate dealing w/ TM/LN directly. I'd prefer getting WH tix from here, cashortrade, or WH boards. But I will still be trying, just to try and get it out of the way.

    Good tip. Will be trying that I guess unless anyone has 3 tickets they want to get rid of.

    Damn, I put in for a single ticket on the WH and looks like I got denied. Hoping to score pit or a close seat during the on-sale!

    Re: *** Official Columbia, MD 2020 ***

    Can't convince the wife to make the trip to Deer Creek again this summer...so I'm thinking maybe a weekend trip to Merriweather. Are the shows typically good here? Venue looks pretty awesome...very different. I see the tailgating/parking is a bit different. It is only a little over 3.5 hours from Pittsburgh, so it seems like a good option for a Saturday show. Any tips on areas to stay? Not too worried about having a little drive to the venue.

    Thanks!

    Made this my priority show and got declined. Looks like it’s going to be a tough ticket to get.

    Held out hope but also, my charges were correct and I have been shut out. Here's hoping I can score something decent tomorrow.

    Got declined for the home venue (w/ Bristow is out this year). Looking for two or four pavilions if anyone ends up w/ extras.

    Are you planning on trying to get anything other than lawn? If so, the shows here suck. Always opens with Dreamgirl, followed by Jimi Thing and You and Me alternating on repeat until they hit 16 songs, then they play a single song SMLAM encore and leave the stage with 15 minutes to spare.

    Alright, none of that is true, I just don't want to fight anyone else for tickets.

    But in all seriousness, the shows aren't typically here so hard to answer your question about sets. They usually play Bristow, VA. Good luck on the ticket hunt. And if you do come, sign up for the Tailgate in SirBobalew's signature.

    Astronomically smaller than bristow, though I haven't been pit at mpp since 13, well before the renovations. Might be bigger now, someone with more recent experience will need to chime in

    Mateo, I was reading back and saw you mentioned the sky lawn. How does one access the sky lawn? Is it just first come first served? If so, how early do you have to get in to get that space?

    I went 3-for-5 on show requests, and this was one of the declines. I've never been declined for Bristow, so this must be the Camden fallout. I requested three reserved, and unless I luck out on the Citi presale, don't have much confidence in acquiring three seats for this one.

    I saw Stapleton here last year and was in the pit, it’s maybe quarter the size of Jiffy Lube. That concert seemed to have been way oversold and it showed in the pit. Literally it was shoulder to shoulder with barely any room to move, we even tried moving to the back and it was pretty insane how many people they loaded into there. Sound is amazing there though and even at the back of the pit it seemed as it’s perfect view.

    Much, much smaller than Bristow. I saw OAR and Phish there last summer and it was tight, even in the back. I'm going to look to get lucky and find a good reserved pair to avoid the crowd but probably prefer the pit to a reserved seat in the back of the pavilion or something way off to the side.

    I'm really happy not to have to make the trip to Bristow this year but the large pit is the one thing I'll miss.

    Last year was the first year of sky lawn, so itís unsure how packed it will be right away, but last year it wasnít a problem to get up there and on the rail at all. If you go in at doors and head right for it, you shouldnít have any issue. Itís just first come/first serve like any lawn spot, itís just elevated above the seats. If you go in right as the band is about to come on, itíll be harder to get a spot as people figure it out. I thought the viewing angles were decent, and itís actually got a few tiers, so if youíre not right on the rail there, you can still see decently well. And thereís a section on each side of the pavilion. Itís kind of an angled view, not dead center, but itís nice.

    Hereís how the grassy hills of the sky lawn look:

    https://media-bizj-us.cdn.ampproject...2277-308-0.jpg

    And hereís someoneís photo from the sky lawn:

    https://i.redd.it/01en2qvwv6631.jpg

    Itís worth checking out to see if you like it, and if you donít, you can always head back to the regular lawn (which I think is pretty nice anyways). If you canít get good reserves and donít like the $115 price point, I think itís a great alternative.

    I really like the lawn here. Itís not nearly as big as Jiffy Lube and itís pretty. The sound is great and if youíre standing, you can see the stage decently, or if youíre laying in the grass, the screens are really nice. Itís easy to get around to any of the beer lines or bathrooms, and their beer selection and food is pretty decent.

    Weíll do lawn a lot at this venue, and we wonít do lawn anywhere else (aside from Wolf Trap).

    Weíve been to shows here where weíve had seats and opted to just stay in the lawn because itís a pretty night.

    Nothing beats being in the front rows of seats for a favorite band, but if youíre doing lawn itís not a bad experience here.

    And for anyone who’s still bummed about Jiffy Lube, you’re going to love how easy it is to get out of this venue at the end of the night.

    Without fail, we see the end of the show, use the rest room, walk to the car, turn it on and you’re on the highway in 3 minutes.

    Edit: is it obvious I’m over-excited for this show?
