We strongly advise you take public transportation. The Red Line and the Green Line provide the closest T stops to the DCR Hatch Shell, we recommend using the Copley or the Science Park stops on the Green Line. Click here for full MBTA Schedule.
You can access the event from The Blossom Street Footbridge over Storrow Drive or on street crossing at Leverett Circle/Science Park. Walk west along Storrow Drive with the Charles River on your right and the Hatch Shell is a short walk from here. You may also access MixFest from the Dartmouth Street Footbridge over Storrow Drive.
There will be 2 entrances into MixFest. One will be near the Dartmouth Street Footbridge and the other near Community Boating. Concertgoers should allow extra time for entrance into the event as everyone will be required to pass security checkpoints at the entrances. All bags will be subject to a discretionary search.
What About Uber/Lyft/Taxis?
There will be no Uber/Lyft/Taxi drop-offs allowed at the Hatch Shell. If an event-goer plans to use one of these means of transportation, they should either be dropped off in Charles Circle OR at the corner of Beacon St. and Clarendon St. so that they can use the approved footbridges to gain access to the venue.
Where can I park?
There will be no parking allowed on Storrow Drive. If you are driving to the concert, we recommend parking at Boston Common Garage or the LAZ parking lot at Mass Eye & Ear.
Is there handicapped parking on Storrow Drive?
No, there will not be handicapped parking on Storrow Drive. However, there is a handicapped-only drop-off site on Storrow Drive, near the Community Boat House. Handicapped individuals can be dropped off here. Cars will then need to be parked off site.
