Ive always managed to make a backpack work for the weekend as a carry on. You can bring a laptop with you on the plane as well as a ”personal” item for no additional fee (like how a woman can bring a purse + carry on). I don't buy too much merch at fests because I buy so much on a regular basis all the time that there's not much I can't get elsewhere....besides shirts which I always buy. I just roll them up tight in the back pack and its no prob if you pack light.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I haven't flown since 2007 and I don't really remember how flying goes. Before that I hadn't flown since 1999 or so. That and I'm really trying to get over a crippling fear of flying for this trip, so the flying part is the biggest issue for me and I have to make sure I have everything in order before I arrive at ABA at 3AM on May 23rd.

Okay, I need advice on airplane to hotel transportation. I've heard the train runs from the airport to close the Sleep/Holiday Inn. Is this true?

I'm really nervous, I never travel alone.

Call your hotel and ask them if they offer a shuttle service.if not, ask about busses etc.

They don't offer a shuttle, just called. I guess I'll just have to cab it.

Cheaper than renting a car for four days. Unless some locals want to help me out Wink Wink

Plus I'm not old enough to rent a car.

Wait is it 24 or 26 to rent a car? I'll be 24 then.

Probably still cheaper to cab it.

I think the age most places is 25. but I also hear that they'll let you rent a car if you're at least 21 and have a credit card, dunno about that since there's probably some extra fees or something you'd have to pay.

I know this is slightly off topic but I'm a relatively inexperienced traveler when it comes to flying. I really don't want to check any bags so does anyone have a a suggestion for a carry-on that'll fit my laptop, my headphones (over the ear studio headphones), some clothes, and still leave room for some merch? I don't know how the merch stands operate at MDF but I imagine I'll be able to pick up some LPs and stuff, right?


You can take a carry-on sized suitcase AND backpack with you on the plane. No need to check any bags.

Yeah, if your hotel is downtown / inner harbor area just take the train from the airport to downtown and walk the rest. No need for a cab or shuttle. it's easy. If your hotel is not walking distance to the venue, then you screwed up.

1) Get some Xanax for your flight

2) Cancel your hotel and get a better one. Use hotwire.com's "hidden" deals. You'll get a great rate on a hotel within the area.

3) MDF

Anyone know if there's ways to safely store a back pack there? It would really suck having to hold my backpack while I'm watching bands... that's the only thing I'm worried about really, which ain't that big of a deal but i'd sure like to know.
