Travel & Parking

How do I get to the festival?

Please review the Get Here page.

Where should I park?

Please review the Get Here page.

Will there be bike parking available?

Bike parking will be available. Please check back closer to festival dates for location.


Will you be sending me my locker key or combination lock?

No. Please bring your PayPal receipt to the event and we will exchange it for your locker key or padlock at our check-in tent at the venue.

How do I get my locker key or combination lock?

Please print your PayPal receipt and bring it to the locker check-in tent at the event. You will see your receipt on-screen and receive it via email after placing your locker order. If you have trouble locating or printing your receipt, please contact Locker Lou.

Is my locker guaranteed for the entire show?

Yes. If you reserve a locker online, we will hold your locker throughout the entire festival until you claim it.

Will you explain the locker key/combination lock deposit?

Let's use the Medium Locker as an example:

  • You will be charged $40 on PayPal.
  • You will bring the PayPal receipt to the locker check-in at the venue.
  • You will receive a locker key that you keep for the two days of the event.
  • When you return the key, you will immediately receive a $20 deposit refund in cash.
  • Your net total cost for the Medium Locker for two days is $20.
  • You'll leave the show with $20 gas money in your pocket for the drive home.

But, I really hate lines...

We all hate lines. Please help us be efficient. When claiming your locker, please make sure you have your PayPal receipt printed and ready to hand to one of us at locker check-in.

When it's time to go home, all refunds will be issued quickly. Just hand us the locker key and we'll hand you a $20 bill. No forms, no IDs and no complications. It took more time for you to read this answer than it will to receive your deposit refund. Sometimes there's a line, but it moves fast and it won't take you long to receive your refund.

Where is the locker check-in tent?

Signs will be posted on-site and event staff will be able to direct you to the right location. Our location will also be in the show welcome guide, the show map and in the show mobile app when each are made available.

If you're lost, simply call 800.827.1692 and we'll point you in the right direction.

Will I be able to access my locker any time I want?

You must have a show wristband to access the lockers. You will be allowed access to the lockers at any time during the show hours while you are inside the venue. Once the grounds are closed for the night, you will not be able to access the lockers until the following day.

How big are the lockers?

Locker sizes are posted on our reservation page.

Can I pay for my locker at the event?

Maybe. There is a limited supply of lockers and all of them are available online. It is most likely that every locker will be reserved prior to the festival. If the lockers sell out online there will be none available for purchase on-site unless there is a last-minute cancellation.

However, if you reserve now, we will guarantee your locker for the entire event.

If I can't make it to the show or decide I don't need my locker, can I get a refund?

Yes! Please contact Locker Lou as soon as possible prior to the event. No refund will be issued once the event begins. However, if you don't already know, Locker Lou is a pretty sensitive and understanding guy... Feel free to contact Locker Lou if something comes up after the music has already started playing.

What happens if I lose my key?

If you lose your key, you will forfeit your $20 deposit. You will receive a new key and will need to pay another refundable $20 deposit. Once you return the new key, you will receive the second deposit back. If you find your lost key, you’ll receive your original deposit back too.

Will I be able to charge my phone/tablet/laptop?

Yes! We'll have a charging station inside our tent with private laptop lockers that include electrical outlets. They will be available to accommodate phones, tablets, laptops and cameras. There is no fee for this service.

Can I get more than one key for my locker?

Only one key is issued for each Medium or Large Locker. However, all Extra-Large Lockers will be issued a combination lock.

Can I bring my own padlock?

No! You can not use your own lock. You must use the lock provided by Locker Lou. There is no additional charge for the use of our lock, which remains the property of Locker Lou. A $20 refundable lock deposit is collected when you reserve the Extra-Large Keyless Combination Locker online. We use “set-your-own combination” locks for customer convenience and increased security.

Will a prior show's locker combination open the same locker at this show?

No! After being returned at the end of each show, each and every lock combination is reset. The customers at each show then receive a lock at random from a bin and select their own personal code.

Locker Lou's Friendly Advice: If you're looking for a quick score, forget the lockers... play Powerball.

What if I forget to bring my PayPal receipt?

Don't worry! You will have to wait in line, but you will receive your locker. If you forget your receipt, you will have to fill out paper work so we can process your reservation. Please print and bring a hard copy of your receipt to avoid complications and delays.

Now is the time to repeat the Locker Lou mantra: "I will print and bring my PayPal receipt... I will print and bring my PayPal receipt... I will print and bring my PayPal receipt."

I'm super excited about getting my locker. Can I text all my friends while driving?

No! Pull over before you text your friends the good news: "IJGALFLL!" (I just got a locker from Locker Lou!).
