Festival Info

PARKING & TRANSPORTATION

We are offering a limited amount of paid parking on the island. However due to traffic congestion and a shortage of parking, there will be no parking on Treasure Island, unless you have purchased an on island parking pass.

All general admission and VIP tickets include complimentary shuttle pick-up from the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco to and from the festival site on Treasure Island. You DO NOT have to have tickets in hand to board the shuttle and you will be able to purchase tickets at the box office if they are still available. Shuttles will run on a continuous loop throughout the day beginning at 11:00am.

The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium is located at 99 Grove Street in the heart of San Francisco adjacent to a number of MUNI lines and the Civic Center BART station.

If you are planning on driving, parking is available at several lots in a three block radius of the Bill Graham Civic, including the Civic Center Garage which is adjacent to the BGC. The garage entrance is off of McAllister Street between Polk Street and Larkin Street. Parking rates vary.

Motorcycles will also require a parking pass for on island parking.

Ticket holders picking up their tickets at Will Call on the island will not need to present tickets to board the shuttle.

Valet Bike Parking will be provided at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Think of it like a coat check for bikes—you don’t need to worry about the safety of your bike while you are out enjoying the music. Just park your wheels at the Civic Auditorium valet, ride a bus to the island, and then turn in your claim check when you get back.

Please visit our transportation page for the full information on getting to the festival.
