Wicked Good Festival FAQ

We're so excited for the Wicked Good Festival on August 18th at the Boston Common! Please note that the rules of the Common do apply during the festival, but there are a couple of things we wanted to draw your attention to:


Where on the Boston Common can I find the festival?

You can find us on the parade grounds at the corner of Beacon and Charles. There is no entrance and no ticket check - just walk in and join the crowd!


How can I get there?

You have options such as driving and public transportation. If you choose to take the T, the nearest stops are as follows:

Green Line: Arlington, Boylston, Park Street

Red Line: Park Street

Pro tip: the MBTA is offering a $10 all-weekend pass on the Commuter Rail.


Is there parking?

The first artist goes on at 12PM, and the show will wrap up by 7:30PM.

Here is the full lineup.

Can I bring my own food?
