2013 America's Most Wanted Music Festival
Olympia Entertainment is advising guests attending the Lil Wayne concert this Friday, August 9 to be prepared for high traffic volumes due to ongoing Cobo Hall construction occurring in the district. Due to thousands of guests entering and exiting the downtown area during the same time frames, traffic volumes will be heavy and local parking availability will be limited and only available on a first come, first served basis.
Arrive early due to the limited number of parking spaces and due to increased traffic volumes on local highways and surface roads.
Due to construction at Cobo Hall, parking at the Cobo Roof Parking Deck will be very limited. Also, traffic lanes will be restricted from four to two lanes on Atwater.
There are no in and out privileges at Olympia Development lots.
Olympia Development lots accept cash only in small denominations; $100 bills cannot be accepted.

Grammy Awarding-winning and multi-platinum recording artist Lil Wayne will bring his "2013 America's Most Wanted Music Festival" to Joe Louis Arena on Friday, August 9 at 7 p.m. with special guests T.I. and 2 Chainz.
The "2013 America's Most Wanted Music Festival" is the follow up to Lil Wayne's blockbuster "2009 Young Money Presents: America's Most Wanted Music Festival", which grossed approximately $42 million and drew nearly 804,000 fans, and is in support of his latest studio album I Am Not A Human Being 2. Following the U.S. dates, the tour will head overseas in October to kick-off the European leg with special guest Mac Miller.
An indefatigable performer renowned for his extended headlining sets, full live band, pyrotechnics and creative stage and lighting design, Lil Wayne's "2013 America's Most Wanted Music Festival" promises to be a visual and aural spectacle unlike anything he has already accomplished in his legendary, two decade career.
