What’s the parking situation like?

We have two parking lots on-site; the VIP Parking Lot and Main Parking Lot. VIP Parking Lot passes are available on the #Fest ticket page, and will 100% guarantee your spot on-site as your pass reserves you a spot. The VIP Parking Lot is located closest to the entry to reduce the amount of walking from your car to the festival, and is also located closer to the entry/exit of the venue making it easier to arrive and depart.

Main Parking Lot passes will not be available before #Fest, only on-site. Parking in this lot is $20, and is first-come, first-served. There are thousands of spots available in this lot.
