shuttles and parking

There is no parking at the MusicFest site. Unless you have a camping pass, the only way to get to the festival is to take a short shuttle ride from the free parking lot at Big Sky Resort or designated shuttle areas in Big Sky Town Center.



Shuttles are how you'll get to the festival and how you'll leave. They'll begin 2 hours before the opening act on both days, and will run continuously from then on. If you're waiting for others to arrive or just want to hang out at the Resort for a bit, grab a drink at Montana Jack's or Hummers. The Hungry Moose has great food and drink and there's an ATM if you need some cash.

Tickets will be checked before you can board a shuttle. Wristbands for entry to the festival will be issued at this point.
