Parking & Shuttle information


There are 3 parking lots that will be utilized for the festival. When pulling into the main water works entrance off Fleur (1004 Fleur Dr Des Moines Iowa 50321) a parking attendee will direct attendees to the the lot available. Once the first lot next the amphitheater is filled, they will direct attendees to the next available lot on George Flagg Parkway.Parking is $10 per day and must be paid with cash.

Uber/Lyft Drop off

515 Alive will have a designated Uber, Lyft and Taxi drop-off in the DMWW Administration Building Parking Lot at 2201 George Flagg Parkway - we highly encourage using this as it will save you on parking fees and walking from parking lots to the venue!


Camping to festival shuttle: Because of the move to the amphitheater all campers will have FREE access to a shuttle that takes you from the camp grounds to the festival grounds and back. The shuttles start at 3:30pm both days and end once the last group is back to the camping area. Camping pickup location will be near the camping entrance and the shuttle will drop you off by the festival gates. The Festival pick up location is on the northwest corner of the amphitheater near the main entrance and the shuttle will drop you off at the camping entrance.

After Party Shuttle: This is a PAID SHUTTLE PASS that can be purchased on the after party ticketing pages. Once you add an after party pass to your cart it will ask if you’d like to add a shuttle pass to your order. These can also be purchased when entering the shuttle bus for $10. The shuttles for the after parties start at 10pm and run til the last group is back after the event at Val Air Ballroom.

The pick up location will be at the southwest corner of the amphitheater near the white barn (just west of mainstage outside the fence). The shuttle will also stop in the camping area to pick up any campers that need a ride.

The return trip will drop groups off at the first parking lot near the venue, the soccer field parking lot and the back parking lot/camping area.
