Frequently asked questions
When and where is SBCLTR FSTVL?
What time does the festival end?
What does my ticket price cover?
What’s the best time to arrive?
For the full experience, we would recommend taking the days around the 4th of July weekend off from work and arriving early on Thursday to get acquainted with the location and the FSTVL grounds. Arriving early gives you the opportunity to be there when you wake up Friday morning and be immersed in the magic from the beginning. Not to mention, attending the pre-party on Thursday night with a very special guest.
Is it safe to drive there?
Yes, it is completely safe to drive there. The drive is super easy and across well-paved roads and highways
How far is it from Los Angeles?
The drive from downtown Los Angeles to the FSTVL grounds is about a 3.5-hour journey.
What is the best way to get there?

What do I need to cross the border?
To each attendee, this is a unique case. Please make sure you have your respective legal documentation (passport or green card) to safely cross and return.
Is it difficult crossing the border?
You may think it's difficult or annoying, but it's actually super easy. Matter of fact, you just drive-thru. Returning to the United States is also easy, it just takes a little longer due to document verification.
If I am flying what airport should I use?
If you are traveling in for the event, the easiest airport would be to land in Tijuana International (TIJ). From there it is a short 1-hour drive to the FSTVL grounds. If you prefer to take one of our shuttles to the venue, landing in San Diego will be better for you. From there you can take an Uber to the pedestrian border cross and board one of our shuttles after you cross the border.
