CONCESSIONS

Just like at Brewers games, there will be many concession stands open for fans to purchase food and beverage.

FAN SCREENING

New for 2015, in accordance with MLB-wide policy, all fans will be required to go through metal detector screening via walkthrough and/or handheld detectors, prior to being granted access to Miller Park. To help expedite the process and minimize delays, the Milwaukee Brewers will implement Express lanes for guests that are entering the ballpark without a bag. Fans will be asked to remove cell phones, cameras, and other large metal objects prior to entering, but they will not be required to remove shoes, wallets, coins, or belts. Guests are also encouraged to take prohibited items back to their car. Items left at the gate are not the responsibility of the Milwaukee Brewers. Please see “Prohibited Items” for an updated list of prohibited items at Miller Park. If you have any questions regarding the screening process please call Guest Relations at (414) 902-4900.

FIELD ACCESS

Anyone who has seats on the floor will need to obtain a wristband to access their seating area.

We recommend allowing yourself extra time to get your wristband and get to your seat in time for the show. Wristbands can be picked up at the booths located outside the Home Plate Gate and the Hot Corner Gate from 4:00 PM until approximately 5:15 PM.  There will also be four booths inside the ballpark that will be available when the gates open (Field Level concourse near section 118, 110, 126 and in the Hot Corner near the Walls of Honor). In order to obtain a field access wristband, individuals must be present with their own field ticket. Field tickets will be marked once wristband is provided.

GATES

Gates to the ballpark will open at 5:30 p.m. The concert is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

There are five major gates at Miller Park. Avoid long lines by familiarizing yourself with the different gates around the ballpark and plan to arrive early. All attendees will be required to go through fan screening which includes walking through metal detectors.

PARKING

Parking lots will open at 4:00 p.m. Advance parking is available for $25 until Monday, July 15 at the Miller Park Ticket Office. Parking is $30 day-of-show. These fees apply to all vehicles with the exception of buses. Please note: Advance parking means securing your space early and saving $5; it does not permit you “advance” entry into the park.

For directions and a map of the lots, please click here.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION & DROP-OFF

Special Needs Drop-Off There is a Special Needs Drop-Off area; please view the map for directions.

Drop off: The Brewers do not recommend that you drop off children at Miller Park. Pick up will not be accessible on Miller Park property following the show as those streets will be closed for departing traffic only post-concert.

Taxi Cabs Taxis may drop off and pick up using the transit area located outside Helfaer Field.

For directions and a map of the lots, please click here.

RE-ENTRY

Guests may not exit and re-enter Miller Park using the same ticket. However, in case of emergency, exceptions may apply. Please ask staff for assistance.

ROOF STATUS

The roof status is always a big question folks have when we host games or events here. Right now, however, that’s still TBD. As you know, in Wisconsin, the weather can change quickly, but we’ll do our best to keep you updated closer to the show. Be sure to follow us on Twitter ( @Brewers ) for the most up-to-date information. Open or closed, one thing is for sure–Miller Park will be rockin’!

TAILGATING

The parking lots at Miller Park will open at 4:00 p.m. and, just like at Brewers games, tailgating is permitted. Keep in mind that gates to the ballpark will open at 5:30 p.m. and the concert is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. More than 100 portable toilets will be available in the Miller Park parking lots. Parents may tailgate throughout the show if they have children attending, but do not have tickets themselves. We do not recommend that you drop off children at Miller Park. Pick up will not be accessible on Miller Park property following the show as those streets will be closed for departing traffic only post-concert.

is there a place for parents to hang out during the concert or just the parking lot?

No specific set-up. The parking lot is your best bet.

So glad I saw this! I’m coming on Tuesday and found this extremely helpful! Thank you!

Hey, I received 2 tickets from my friend. My brother and I will be coming on Tuesday. But it says that we will need a wristband. And we will be there about 5:45-6:00. Is that too late to get a wrist band?

Did you ever get a reply saying if we could get wristbands after 5:15?

Yes you can! They will be available until 8pm.

No, they will be available until 8pm.

I’m coming from Minnesota tomorrow and I will not be there until after 5:15 can I still get my wristband for the floor?

Thank you!! Very helpful info for 1st time concert goers to Miller Park!

What is th e easiest way to drop off my daughter for the concert. I know it says no drop offs, but I’m not sitting in the parking lot for 7 hours while she attends the concert.

We would recommend dropping off outside the pay area and returning after dinner, paying and parking.

Do I have to buy to parking passes? 1 when I drop my kids off and another when I pick them up?

We would recommend dropping off outside the pay area and returning after dinner, paying and parking.

if we pay the $30 to park to drop off our daughters, and my wife and I decide to go out to eat, do we have to pay the $30 to get back into the parking area?

We would recommend dropping off outside the pay area and returning after dinner, paying and parking.

What is the best place to drop off if they are entering at the home plate gate? I am looking at the miller park map and parking maps. After dinner we can park prettty much anywhere and meet them at the home plate gate.

What is there for the parents to do at the Stadium while the kids enjoy the concert ? Like is there any restaurants open . Or what I really wouldn’t want to have to leave and loose parking .and not only that we would be spending money elsewhere

Parents would need to have a ticket to the concert to come inside.

Carolyn! Come join us for dinner at Burke’s Irish Castle! We’re on 54th and Bluemound and we’ll be running shuttles to and from the concert. Bring your kids here for dinner, send them on the shuttle, and enjoy our laid back atmosphere and good company while you wait for them to return. Hope to see you here!

Will the roof be open or closed?

Open unless there is a threat of rain!

My sister is attending the concert tonight. Will she be allowed to bring in her selfie stick she bought for it? We seen jason derulo at state fair and they allowed it.

All information can be found on the A-to-Z guide.

what time does the parking lot close?

does the parking lot close after a certain time?

It closes 30 minutes after the show ends.

The lots will close 30 minutes post-show.

so is it possible to drop off (before pay area) and than come and pay to park about a half hour before show lets out? instead of having to wait in parking lot the whole time.

How do you justify $30 per car for this event? Ball games are half that!

My wife and daughter will be attending the concert tonight is over the ear hearing protection allowed in. My daughter loves them but she has some noise sensitivity problems. Thanks.

Yes, of course.
