Use public Transports
In the interest of everyone, we ask all festival goers to help us ensure the fluidity of circulations, favoring public transport and car-pooling.
If you come by car to the concert venues, car parks located at the bottom of the lifts can be quickly saturated. For this reason, we recommend you to come by bus or train.
