One of the reasons that Shoreline Amphitheatre is so popular is that it offers plenty of parking options. Standard parking is usually included in the ticket price. A parking fee may apply for some events, so please check when booking your tickets. Guests have a few options when choosing a parking spot:

General Parking

General parking will be included in your ticket purchase for an event. The majority of spaces are for general parking.

VIP Parking

Parking is also available for purchase, including the hire of buses and limos. Throughout the show time your VIP space will be reserved, and is situated at the closest paved near the entrance to the venue.

VIP parking (or Premier Parking) is in a dedicated area and costs extra – ranging from $60 and up, depending on the show

Accessible Parking

There is accessible parking in lots A, C, and D, subject to pre-booking and availability.

Parking Recommendations

While general parking is a cost-effective option, many guests mention the long waits to get out after the show. At larger shows, it can take an hour or more to get back on the highway. As such, the venue highly recommends carpooling and allowing ample time where possible.

Alternatively, the VIP parking lot has a dedicated exit to Highway 101, getting guests on the road within minutes. Many guests also recommend parking off-site in Mountain View and walking to the venue.

From HWY 101, take Amphitheatre Pkwy (from the South) or Rengstorff Blvd (from the North) Exit.
Follow the signs along Amphitheatre Pkwy to the Premier Parking Lot.

To find Shoreline parking lots from Highway 101, take the Amphitheatre Parkway exit if coming from the south, or the Rengstorff Boulevard exit from the north. From there, follow the signs to your designated lot. Parking typically opens an hour before the gates open, giving you plenty of time to arrive and find a space.
