Travelling from within Dundee
Xplore Dundee buses will run regularly from the City Centre to Camperdown Park, with easy access from the train station, bus station and central car parks too. Service 56 will run from Greenmarket every 10 minutes, and service 56a will depart Ward Road every half hour. Tickets and timetables are available here.
Buses 23, 57, 59, A41, A42 and A43 run regularly to Camperdown Park’s entrance from the city centre and other areas of Dundee. These buses will be running throughout the festival weekend.
There will be a dedicated area for taxi drop-offs and pick-ups at the North Gate of the park. We would advise booking taxis in advance as the festival weekend will be very busy. For Dundee taxi companies please click here.
Driving to the Festival
There is strictly no parking for festival goers at Camperdown Park. Accessible parking is available, however this MUST be pre-booked. If you are driving then please use only authorised car parks. Do not park in the Ice Arena or on residential roads around the site as additional parking restrictions will be enforced. The easiest way to get to and from the festival is to use the City Centre shuttle buses. Go green, get the bus!
A public pick up and drop off area will be available for your friends or family to drop you off prior to the show and then pick you up when you wish to go home.
