Transportation FAQs

Ride share
The designated Rideshare drop-off and pick-up is located at KEC Gate 1. Rideshare vehicles will not be allowed to enter at any other KEC parking gate unless they pay the parking fee.
Official hotel & airport shuttle
Need a ride? Pegasus is the official hotel shuttle and airport transportation provider for Bourbon & Beyond 2024. If you are staying at a hotel in the downtown area, leave your car behind and jump on an air-conditioned motor coach for a ride to and from the festival site. Buy your pass HERE. Advance purchase is required, as there will be no on-site purchases.
Fans coming from the offsite parking lots or staying at nearby hotels on Phillips Lane, Crittenden Drive, and Preston Highway are permitted to walk in via any KEC entrance-including Gate 1. Be cautious of vehicle traffic and follow signage and the direction of police and parking staff.
Bikes or on-demand transportation (Scooters, electric bikes)
There will be self-service bicycle parking at Bourbon & Beyond across from the main festival entrance. Please be prepared to provide your own bike lock and park at your own risk. Fans arriving via bike can enter KEC at Gate 2, 4 or 6. Fans arriving via “On Demand” transportation can also enter through the same gates and park in this self-park area.
