Gates open at 6:30 p.m. and many people arrive on time to stake out their spot on the lawn, bringing blankets, chairs and a summer picnic dinner to enjoy before showtime.

Admission is free, although tickets are required -- print them early as tickets often run out in advance. You can order your tickets here. Good to know: Pets and alcohol are not permitted.
