Free Shuttles to and from the festival

Getting to and from SCF has never been easier! Guests can hop on the free shuttle going to and from Vancouver and Whistler. There will also be local shuttles for those needing to pop into town and back to the festival grounds.

Free Bike Valet

Those arriving on two wheels are in luck! SCF’s free bike valet team will ensure that your ride is cared for while you dance the days away.
