You have to know the back roads and it's a piece of cake! It literally dumps you at the four way stop right near Blossom and the police that are always there will stop traffic to let you in. Meanwhile everyone else and their mother are backed up on Steels Corners all the way to Rt 8 then on Rt 8 and sometimes even the turnpike.
Go through the valley to get there through Peninsula, stay off all the highways. Once in Peninsula, take Akron-Peninsula road and turn left on North Hampton, it will take you right to the four way stop, then the police will let you turn right onto Steels Corners and Blossom will be right there
And how to find car afterwords and dont say Park by fence lol...Saw Radiohead there a few times never found my car once without the place clearing out first. I always had a traffic free exit but only due to forgetfullness:). Sad to miss RH this yr at blossom last time on the way back that night drove though what seemed to be a tornado between there and Dayton.

my first radiohead show was at blossom in like '02. had trouble getting in to the venue b/c of traffic but getting out wasn't a problem. i wanted to see them there again, but alas it will not work out. i'd like to catch them in cincy the tuesday before, but my wife is kinda hesitant b/c we would be spending about $160 for a band we are seeing later in the week at roo. i care not, we are going!!
I'm tentatively planning on going for my third consecutive year, from Ravenna (Akron/Cleveland/Youngstown area). Anyone looking to carpool, or maybe rent a van or something? The friends I went with the last two years probably won't be able to make it, and my old beast of a gass-guzzling SUV might not be up for making the trek again, but if I get around to buying a new car in time, I wouldn't mind driving. Or I will split gas and whatever.
