Really? I actually thought the Palace was a great location. At first I was upset it was not at Comerica Park, but it was nice having more room to move around. The streets get so crowded downtown that its nearly impossible to get from one stage to the next in under 15 minutes. Plus I think everyone would have died of heatstroke if it was at Comerica (the Palace has air conditioning).
The only real issue I had was how long it took to get into the venue and park. A lot of the delay was because some asshole got into an accident on the exit ramp though.
The issue I had was that all their vendors ran out of gatorade by noon and water by like, 4. then the kleen kanteen packed up at 5, and no one had water anywhere and there were lines out of the bathrooms to fill up water bottles. they were totally unprepared for how many people were going to be there.
