Raymond James Stadium (N. Lot)

This Memorial Day weekend, May 27-28th, the sixth consecutive Sunset Music Festival makes its return to Tampa's own Raymond James Stadium. A prime location for our spectacular two-day event, the beloved 'Ray Jay' is centrally located and convenient for locals and travelers alike. With last year's attendance upwards of 60,000 dancers, we'll use every inch of the multi-purpose stadium's North Lot. The Tampa Bay area treasure will come to life for a holiday weekend in the Sunshine State.

Drop-offs & Pick-ups

When you arrive at Raymond James Stadium, ask your driver to drop you off on Himes Ave in the southbound right turn lane, as cars approach the entrance to Lot 4 which is in close proximity to the main entry gates.

For pick-ups, Uber drivers must identify themselves at the corner of MLK and Himes Ave. The best way to enter the designated pick-up area is coming south on Himes Ave or east on MLK Blvd from Dale Mabry, as southbound Himes Ave will be closed to through traffic.
