The festival's main entrance is located near Fremont & 7th street and a second general admission gate is located near Fremont & 11th Street.

Drivers not attending the festival are urged to avoid the area around the festival and use the major arteries like I-15 and US-95 to get around street closures.

Parking passes are sold out, however, you can use the app Park Wiz to find an area close to the venue if you'd like to drive to the event. Venue officials encourage attendees to use ride-share to avoid having to park far from the venue or battle traffic.
