ALL ATTENDEES REPORT TO OFF SITE BOX OFFICE FIRST

*** DIO FEST IS NOT A CAR-CAMPING FESTIVAL. READ MORE BELOW...

DIO FEST IS A 'BACKPACKER-STYLE' CAMPING FESTIVAL. IF YOU WANT TO AVOID SHUTTLING ALL YOUR GEAR FROM OUR OFFSITE LOTS TO THE MAIN FESTIVAL GROUNDS, PLEASE PURCHASE A DAY-PASS AND PLAN TO FIND OFF-SITE ACCOMMODATIONS. THAT WAY YOU CAN JUST RIDE UP TO THE MAIN FESTIVAL GROUNDS WITH A DAY-PACK AND NOT NEED TO TRANSPORT YOUR FULL-SET OF CAMPING GEAR ON THE SHUTTLE.

IF YOU'RE AS PSYCHED AS WE ARE THOUGH, YOU SHOULD BUY A 3-DAY CAMPING PASS AND RIDE UP TO THE MAIN FEST GROUNDS ON THE SHUTTLE WITH YOUR GEAR. CAMPING AT THE FESTIVAL GROUNDS IS FIRST COME FIRST SERVED IN THE REDWOODS, BEAUTIFUL SETTING WITH LOTS OF FRIENDS CAMPING TOGETHER. JUST BE AWARE THAT IT'S A BIT OF A COMMITMENT TO GO THIS ROUTE, AND YOU'LL NEED TO PACK LIGHT, AND PACK IT OUT.

Please remember to carpool! Parking is extremely limited and attendees will be parking their vehicles off site. Shuttles will be running from the lower lots to bring everyone up to the festival grounds.

Shuttles run every ~ 30 minutes from 10 am - 11 pm. The shuttles will be at the pick-up spots designated on the map each morning starting at 10 am. Keep your eyes peeled for the parking & shuttles signage as you head up Highway 9. They'll be plentiful and mighty prominent.

Camping will be first come, first serve. If you arrive early, you'll get the best real estate. Please be mindful of your neighbors and welcoming to the late arrivals! Have all of your camping gear in a backpacker fashion, ready to rock and roll up the mountain with ease. You'll be dropped off by the shuttle at the box office and will be directed to the camping areas from there.

Should you want to stay offsite, there is gorgeous camping at both Big and Little Basin Campgrounds, as well as lodging at the Quality Inn & Suites in Ben Lomond. Be sure to book in advance.

1. CARPOOL TO DOWNTOWN BOULDER CREEK

Carpool on HWY 9 to downtown Boulder Creek. Signs will direct you to our off-site box office at Schwarzbach Real Estate.

 

2. CHECK IN AT SCHWARZBACH W/ VALID ID

You'll then be directed to your onsite or offsite parking spot…

THIS STEP INSURES THAT  NON-TICKET HOLDERS WILL NOT GET ON THE SHUTTLE OR FOLLOW THE SHUTTLE TO THE FESTIVAL, IF the festival is not sold out tickets will be available for late bloomers on Friday or Saturday at the off-site box office.

 

3 .  FOLLOW PARKING LOT ATTENDANT DIRECTIONS

  • Onsite parking passes will follow the shuttle up

  • Offsite parking passes will unload their gear from their own cars, then be directed to their parking spot, and then load their gear onto the next available shuttle up to D.I.O.

 

4. CHECK IN AT WILL-CALL on site W/ VALID ID

After you've gotten off the shuttle, check in at Will Call (a.k.a. Front Desk). You'll then get your wristbands. If you are camping at the festival site you will also be assisted by DIO Fest volunteers to find your camping spot and settle in!

respecting boulder creek

To respect our Boulder Creek neighbors and community, it our responsibility to have as little of an impact on surrounding roads and neighborhoods as possible. So please, be patient and follow the lead of DIO Fest parking staff. Always follow the shuttle. When we all get to the top there’ll be high-fives and jams all around. PLEASE DO NOT WALK ON HWY 236 OR NARROW FESTIVAL DRIVEWAY.

getting to boulder creek

From Santa Cruz:

Take Graham Hill Rd. to Felton.

Make a right turn onto HWY 9.

Follow HWY 9 into the town of Boulder Creek.

 

From SF/Bay Area:

Take either I-280 South from San Francisco or I-880 South (which become HWY 17) from the East Bay…

Continue on Highway 17, toward Santa Cruz, into the Santa Cruz Mountains. The road is good here but be aware that there is often heavy traffic.

Look for the Mt. Hermon/Glen Canyon Road Exit and take it.

Go right on Mt. Hermon Road into the town of Scott’s Valley. Follow Mt. Hermon until you reach a T-intersection at Graham Hill Road. Turn right.

Turn right again two blocks down at the next signal onto Highway 9 and follow it for six miles into the town of Boulder Creek.

 

From The South:

The fastest way to come from the South is actually to go to Santa Cruz first, and then follow the directions listed above from Santa Cruz to DIO Fest.

Take HWY 101 North from anywhere south of Monterey (San Diego, LA, Santa Barbara, SLO, etc)

Take the Exit for HWY 129 West towards Watsonville

Follow HWY 129 West until you reach HWY 1

Follow HWY 1 North to Santa Cruz
