Getting ThereBy Free Shuttle (UPDATE): All general admission and VIP tickets include free parking and bus pick-up from Lot A at AT&T Park in San Francisco Bill Graham Civic Auditorium 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. This is a change from the previously planned shutter service from Lot A because the San Francisco Giants have heroically advanced to the National League Championship Series. However due these circumstances, the shuttle bus pickup/drop off location has moved from Lot A at AT&T Park to the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium to accommodate the NLCS.

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.

Bike Parking: Bicycles can park for free in Lot A. There is no bike parking at the festival.

Parking on the Island: Parking at the festival is very limited. If any remain, parking tickets can be purchased for $30 a day HERE.

Public Transit: The Muni 108 stops on Treasure Island. Check

ADA Parking Info can be found HERE.

Live 105’s own Music Director, Aaron Aaron Axelsen describes this festival as, “combination of the intimacy of the festival, the breathtaking picturesque view of the San Francisco landscape, the uniqueness of enjoying a music festival on an island in the middle of the Bay AND of course the stellar line-up of cutting edge indie, EDM, folk, hip-hop, experimental and underground acts.”
