Festival Map

Event Location, Transportation & Parking

The indoor/outdoor event will be held at Discovery Ventura. Discovery Ventura is located in the midst of a neighborhood with adjacent houses. Because the event site plan includes the expansive lot behind Discovery, parking is located off-site, just down the street from the venue, at 125 Hartman Dr. Ventura, CA 93001.  A free shuttle will be running throughout the day starting at 11:30AM through 8pm.  The shuttle will pick-up in the lot and drop-off right in front of the festival gates.  We highly encourage people to carpool, bike, Uber, cab or get dropped off.  There will be an Uber dropoff/pickup zone right in front of the venue. There is also a bike station at the venue where you can secure your cycles – please ride carefully!

Please do not block driveways, leave trash, etc.. The City of Ventura has made it very clear that if the event negatively impacts the neighborhood we will not be able to do it again. Let’s work together to be sure we can do this EVERY year!

Box Office & Entrance

The box-office and entrance to Backyard Bash are located in the driveway of Discovery (look for the signs). Tickets will be available at the box-office/entrance while they last (tickets go up to $46 day of show). This event is expected to sellout so buying in advance is recommended (and cheaper). After-Party combo tickets are also available for only $8 more than a GA ticket. If you already have a Roadshow Revival ticket, you can purchase your After Party ticket at the box-office for $8 (before 7PM).

Guest list & will-call located at the outdoor box-office/entrance. Look for appropriate signage.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available at the Firestone Walker tents outside or at the bar inside the venue. Only beer, water and soda will be sold outside. However, there is a full bar inside the venue. Drinks can be purchased inside then taken outside. Outdoor beer tents require beer tickets which can be purchased at the tent next to the outdoor bar. These tickets can also be used at the inside bar. No refunds will be given for drink tickets but they are good until the end of the After Party.
