- “Take MARTA to either the Civic Center Station or the Peachtree Center Station to avoid traffic and parking headaches. After the show, consider waiting out the post-show traffic at one of the great bars or restaurants near Centennial Olympic Park.” – TJ J., @TJ_404
- “The best part about VIP are the low wait times to purchase a drink and the private restrooms.” – Lauren D-R., @Lauren_Dismuke
- “Withdraw cash from an ATM outside of the festival for food and artist vendors. ATMs inside the park tend to charge extra and card transactions take a while to process.” – Jena S., @Jsteph6
- “Download the 420 Fest app to check out the schedule, artists and latest updates.” – Clay W., @ClaysFestTip
- “There will be a diverse selection of food choices with local food trucks and plenty of nearby restaurants to visit before and after.” – Victoria C., @Vic.Carte
- “Don’t put your wristband on until you plan to keep it on! They won’t let you in if your wristband that has been removed, so be careful when you tighten it, too. If this does happen, SweetWater will let you get a new one with $5 cash but you must have your driver’s license as well. The wristband also must be registered in your name prior to entering the festival.” – Kathryn W., @KathrynWilhoit
- “Tennis shoes are better than flip-flops, ponchos are better than rain jackets and dry clothes are better than being wet and muddy.” – Tommy S., @thisisastub
