We attended Center CityFest last year. Although there are excellant bands, the venue is awful. It is literally in the backlot behind the stadium. There is little grass, lots of dirt, and gravel. This is not a nice place to listen to music, nor is it quiet. I am actually surprised that they can get bands to play at this poor venue. Food and drinks are overpriced. They have no place to hold backpacks and will not let you enter with them. We had to pay another cab to return a (very small) backpack that they refused to allow us to enter with. The staff was rude and on a power trip. If you want a real drink, beyond canned beer and margaritas that taste like RealLemon, you have to actually leave and go to a bar. I would not recommend this festival.
Pros: good bands
Cons: horrible venue, expensive, rude staff
