When partying like a proper Bonnaroovian, getting there safely is the most important thing. We've got you covered on that front with our travel guide. There are no gas stations on-site, so be sure to fill up when you're still an hour or so away.

It's best to avoid peak travel times

► Tuesday peaks with longer wait times at around 8 a.m. and then averages out around 1 p.m.► Wednesday has longer wait times from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.► Thursday's wait times peak at the start of the day and average long wait times until around 3 p.m. and pick up again at around 6 p.m. So your best time frame if you're looking to get out of traffic is 3 to 6 p.m.► Friday morning has average traffic till 2 p.m., then things start to get longer from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
