We love to keep things green and sustainable at the festival and if you could help us out by using an alternative type of transportation to get here we would really appreciate it and so would Mother Earth!


We will have a bike valet at the festival FREE of charge for you to park your bike and not have to worry about it. It will be attended by good people at Bike Loca at all times. The festival location is nestled right along a Class I Bike Path that connects to the LA River Bike Path as well as the Beach Path just below the Bluffs that takes you all the way to Belmont Shore. CLICK HERE FOR A BIKE PATH MAP


We are working with the Metro Blue Line to give a discount on admission at the door if you take the Metro. More updates on this soon!


Taking the bus is a great way to reduce that carbon footprint and once you are in downtown Long Beach you can catch the Passport bus for FREE and it takes you right to the festival location. CLICK HERE FOR A BUS/PASSPORT MAP


If you have to come by car we ask that you carpool with a friend! Getting to the festival by car could not be any easier and all you have to do is take the 405 Fwy to the 710 Fwy South and the 710 turns into Shoreline Village Dr. CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS


Parking around Rainbow Lagoon Park is plentiful and there are many options. The most convenient parking is adjacent to the park in the LB Convention Center Parking Lot which is $10 for all day parking as well as Shoreline Village & The Marina parking lots.


If you are looking for some place to say we recommend The Renaissance Long Beach as the premier location to stay. Just a short 5 minute walk to the festival location. We will have a special package set up for all that are coming from out of town! Use code "LPR" and get a city view room for only $159 a night or a harbor view room for $179 per night the weekend of the festival. These rooms typically run about $40 more without this discount!
