If you plan to have an alcoholic beverage during your visit, please remember that you must wear a wristband to purchase or consume alcohol. There are several wrist-banding stations located throughout the venue where your ID will be checked and a wristband will be issued. And, as always, please drink in moderation.

Our box office is located just outside the main gates and will be open beginning at 10:00 AM on the day of the show.

Parking lots open at 2:30 PM, and the outdoor plazas will open at approximately 3:30 PM. Initially, the seating area will be closed as the final preparations for a great show are being completed and will open approximately at 4:00 PM.
Where can I park and how much does it cost?
Sunlight Supply Amphitheater has parking capacity for over 7,000 vehicles, and event ticket holders may park in the Amphitheater lots free of charge.
Due to the projected number of vehicles parking on site, we're expecting the parking lots to be completely cleared by 12:25 AM. Please be aware that there are no off-site parking facilities nearby. If waiting isn't for you, we strongly recommend utilizing YES Parking or the shuttle service from the Salmon Creek Park and Ride, starting at approximately 3:30 PM.
Where may I pick up and drop off?
There is a drop off location directly in front of the box office. Just enter the Amphitheater parking lots and follow the signs.
After the event, we recommend that you instruct your party to take the shuttle back to the Salmon Creek Park and Ride and pick them up there. There is no fee for the ride at the end of the event.
Where may I meet my rideshare service such as Uber and Lyft?
We strongly recommend that your party utilize the Salmon Creek Park and Ride Shuttle. The shuttle’s nominal cost is, well worth the price in time saved.
Uber, Lyft, taxis, limos and all other hired transportation are under the same traffic constraints as all other drivers at the Amphitheater, and the reality is that, with so many vehicles at an event, navigating traffic, especially after a show, is going to take time and cost extra money by sitting in traffic. Save yourself time and money buy hopping on the shuttle to meet your driver at the Salmon Creek Park and Ride.

May I tailgate in the parking lots before, during & after the concert?
Due to the respective Washington State Liquor Control Board, Clark County Fire Marshal and Clark County regulations, alcohol consumption, open flames and camping are not allowed in the parking lots.
Also, our parking staff will be working to safely and efficiently park all arriving vehicles. It is important to keep lanes clear. For your safety and the safety of others, activity may not extend beyond your vehicle's immediate parking space, which makes any type of tailgating experience cramped, so please refrain.
However, we encourage you to head inside as soon as you arrive. There is plenty of room inside the venue to enjoy available food and beverage.
At the end of the event, as you wait to exit the parking lots, we appreciate your patience and understanding. We are working very diligently to get patrons home as quickly and safely as possible. However, sometimes, despite our best efforts, the only thing that can be done is to wait for the traffic congestion to dissipate.
May I bring a chair?
Small chairs for the lawn are permitted as long as they are shorter than 28 inches in their folded position. We also have chairs for rent at the Amphitheater.

Washington State Law prohibits the use of cannabis in public and specifically on any alcohol licensed premises. Washington State Law also specifically requires that anyone who uses cannabis on an alcohol licensed premise be removed from that premise immediately and without warning.
