All general admission and VIP tickets include complimentary bus 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.

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.


Valet Bike Parking will be provided at BGC. 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 zero-emission bus to the island, and then turn in your claim check when you get back.


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. This applies to cars, motorcycles, vans, etc.

There is limited disabled-designated parking available on Treasure Island on a first-come, first serve basis. You must have a State issued placard to park in these spaces. Be prepared to present a driver’s license or other ID at the entry point to disabled-designated parking that proves the placard was issued to you. Please e-mail for more information and directions.

There is an ADA accessible shuttle running to and from the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium to the island and back.


The Treasure Island Marina has a limited number of guest slips, or you can anchor out and dinghy over to the Marina. The Marina is a short walk to the festival site—visit for more information. You will NOT be able to anchor near the festival site—it is dangerously close to the Treasure Island boulder retaining wall and you will not be able to see into the Festival site.
