In earlier years FYF earned a reputation as a well-crafted festival that always suffered from navigational challenges. Last year when the festival moved to Exposition Park, it was saddled with crucial logistical issues, such as extensive waits for entrance and food and drink. And at the arena, capacity concerns for the estimated 40,000 who attended slowed entry. The fest even sent out an apology email to fans.
Organizers worked to eliminate those issues ahead of this year's festival.
A "new improved shortcut" between the Coliseum lawn and the main stage sliced the walking time down significantly. But the walk from the main entrance to the main stage is still a drag and switching between stages is difficult — especially once the arena starts to get crowded and hundreds of festival-goers are lined up outside.
