Get your Parking Pass before you arrive!

There are two parking lots at the Speed of Sound Festival: the Economy Class Lot ($10 per vehicle) and the First Class Lot ($15 per vehicle). Both lots are on-site at the Dutchess County Airport (no shuttles required), however the First Class Lot is a much shorter walk from the Festival entrance! Economy Class ticket-holders ARE allowed to park in the First Class Lot as long they purchase a First Class Parking Pass.

We highly encourage carpooling (and don't forget to designate a sober driver).

**Update (8/4/16): All First Class Parking Passes are SOLD OUT!**
