Lansdowne offers more than 600 bike parking spaces across the site. All bicycles must be left outside the festival gates. You should not operate any vehicle, even a non-motorized one like a bicycle, while intoxicated. Please be safe.

We encourage festival attendees to seriously consider all other modes of transportation first. While there is an underground parking garage at Lansdowne, parking is very limited. Taking the bus, using a ride-share/taxi, or walking are all highly recommended as much safer ways to travel when consumption of alcoholic beverages is involved! We want you to have a great time at the festival, but we also want you to get home alive and well.
NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE!
