Shuttles and Parking

Three Day Shuttle Passes

Skip the hassle of traffic and parking, and take the official EDC shuttle! It’s the fastest and easiest way to the festival. Shuttles will conveniently transport you from your hotel to the Speedway and back, running throughout the night.

Using a dedicated route to bypass regular traffic, shuttles take you to a convenient EDC Shuttle Lot directly adjacent to the festival site. EDC Shuttle Will Call opens at 10am on each show day. If you already purchased your ticket to EDC, your shuttle pass will be mailed along with your tickets.

Important note about shuttle passes this year: You will be tied to the one location printed on your wristband. For example, if you select the Cosmopolitan, you will receive a wristband that says "Cosmopolitan" and you can only hop on the shuttle at the Cosmopolitan.

Update: Anyone with a shuttle wristband is welcome to use the following stops: Luxor Lot, The Linq, and Downtown.
