Move over Taylor Swift, Beyonce is coming to Santa Clara. And the price of parking may not break your soul this time around.
Beyonce is scheduled to bring her silver-sequined Renaissance World Tour performance to the San Francisco Bay Area on Aug. 30. Though it’s the fifth time Queen Bey will perform at Levi’s Stadium, Beyonce’s last performance in Santa Clara was in 2018.
With nearly 69,000 seats, Levi’s is certainly big enough to handle a superstar of Beyonce’s stature and her legions of adoring fans, who affectionately call themselves the Beyhive.
Parking, on the other hand, might be a bit of a challenge—just take it from the Swifties who recently spent hundreds on parking tickets and endured hours of traffic in Levi Stadium’s parking lot after the show.
The good news is that it seems to be a little less pricey to buy an on-site parking spot for the Renaissance Tour. Parking prices also do not appear to change based on how many ticket holders are in your vehicle.
Ticketmaster is only selling $50 passes to reserve a spot in one of Levi’s biggest lots, Blue Lot 1. Swift’s parking prices, by comparison, ranged between $139 and $625 on StubHub for similar spots. StubHub had the widest range of parking options as of Tuesday morning: The online ticketing site lists its cheapest Green Lot 3 tickets for just $49, while more expensive parking in that lot, located closer to the stadium, go for as much as $315.
But if you’re wanting a VIP experience and a quick post-show getaway, you might have to pay a pretty penny.
Tickets for Red Lot 1, dubbed the “best-selling section for this event” by Stubhub, range from roughly $146 to a whopping $1,895 on ticketing resale platform VividSeats. StubHub has just one Yellow Lot VIP spot for sale for $899.
Yet for the public transit fans out there, there are more than a few options to avoid road traffic: Concertgoers can use BART, Caltrain, Capitol Corridor, Altamont Commuter Express and Valley Transportation Authority’s networks. Swift’s Era’s Tour practically shut down Santa Clara for the two nights of her August performance: Fans flocked to public transit in record numbers, bringing some 25,000 boardings on local transit lines for the first night alone.
Levi’s Stadium also designates ride-share service pickup and drop-off points in Red Lot 7. Accessible drop-off can be found at 2926 Patrick Henry Drive. For those arriving by bike or scooter, Levi’s apparently keeps bike racks in Red Lot 1.
Though the concert is sure to bring a summer renaissance to Santa Clara—in the middle of Virgo season, no less—the stadium warns guests that tailgating is banned outside the stadium.
