The Venue Of Athens, located off of State Route 56 in Athens, OH, has been the home to #Fest since 2011 (#8Fest). The massive openness of The Venue is perfect for building multiple stages, a camping section, and the whole unique experience #Fest has become known for.
Dropoffs and pickups will take place at Gate 2. There is no cost to get dropped off or picked up. Plan your pickups ahead of time as venue traffic gets congested once #Fest is over and cell phone service is limited.
VIP parking will be directed where to go as you enter. If you purchased a VIP parking + Camping please drive to parking by GATE 1 and you will get parking right next to the campgrounds. Each parking pass is good for 1 entry. You may leave your car there the whole weekend but if you drive out and come back, you will need to buy another parking pass.
GA parking is available upon arrival at #Fest only. Follow the path around to Gate 1 (where the main entrance is for the festival), and our parking attendants will direct you to a spot. GA parking is paid and valid for one car entry only. You may leave your car there the whole weekend but if you drive out and come back, you will need to buy another parking pass.
