What happens if the park fills up?

The venue will close once capacity has been reached. Announcement of capacity closure will come via @Millennium_Park Twitter and with venue signage; there will be no pre-closure capacity based announcements. Concert-goers are recommended to arrive early, as entry cannot be guaranteed. If the venue is nearing capacity, you may be asked to release held space to make room for those waiting to get inside.
