TRAVEL & TRANSPORT
There are several alternatives to reach the festival premises as detailed below.
We encourage you to leave the car at home and take advantage of one of our shuttle buses from Barcelona, so that the environmental impact is minimal.
Bookings are now available:
The shuttle bus will departure from the following location in Barcelona city centre:
Passeig de Lluís Companys
In front of Arc de Triomf, at the corner with Av. Vilanova:
We kindly ask everyone travelling by bus to arrive 15 minutes before departure with your valid tickets for both the bus boarding and the festival entrance.
As a novelty this year we will be giving every attendee his/her wristband for the festival before boarding the bus, so please make sure you have yours ready either printed or digital in advance.
The festival is located in the Prepyrenees, just above 1.5 hours drive from Barcelona. From Barcelona take the C-16 Highway (Autopista de Montserrat) in direction to Pyrenees.
Please note that we have implemented a green tax for every vehicle accessing the Paral·lel parking area. We want to contribute to the preservation of the natural environment where the festival takes place with a donation to the ADF Berguedà forest guard. The ADF Berguedà will use these funds to conduct forestry and fire prevention work to minimize our environmental footprint.
Also keep in mind that the land in the festival premises can be uneven. It is your own responsibility to access it with your own suitable vehicle.
If you can't travel by car and our shuttle bus schedule does not fit yours, you may also consider using public transport to travel to the festival. There is a regular bus line operating between Barcelona and Guardiola de Berguedà.
This line is operated by Alsa, and you can find all the timetables and price tickets here:
*Important note: You will need a taxi or car-sharing to get from Guardiola to Paral·lel Festival (10 km distance).
Travelling from Barcelona to the festival by taxi may be very expensive, but local cabs can be a good option if you need to travel around the area close to the festival.
