GENERAL

Friday 5 PM-11 PM, Saturday 2 PM-11 PM and Sunday 2 PM-10 PM.

Parking in the area is going to be tough. Public transportation to and from the festival is widely available, affordable, and often times dependable. BART and MUNI lines are nearby. Visit bart.gov to use their Trip QuickPlanner for your travel needs.

Get a ride with Uber, the official ride of Clusterfest. Pickup / dropoff will be located on McAllister between Polk & Larkin.

This is an all ages festival but we’re not about to ask comedians to watch their mouths. Your kids may leave with unexpectedly expanded vocabularies and knowledge.

In general, re-entry is not allowed. You may enter the festival gates once each day. However, if you absolutely must leave the festival and need to return the same day, you must speak with a supervisor at any festival entrance or exit BEFORE LEAVING to be scanned out. Yes, it is as complicated as it sounds. We do not recommend it. And, yes, we realize it would be much easier to just tell you “no.”

All tickets will come in the form of a wristband. Stylish! If you purchase your ticket closer to the festival and we are unable to ship the wristband to you, you will receive instructions on where to pick your wristband up. If you do not like instructions, we get it. Rebellion is cool, but if you want to get in, you have to play ball.

For more information on wristbands click here.

You will receive ONE wristband that grants you access to all three days of the festival. It cannot be removed once put on. If security suspects that your wristband has been tampered with, it will be void, and you will not be given access to the festival. Friendship is not worth missing out on this killer lineup.

Download the official Clusterfest mobile app to create your custom schedule and see the festival map. Available for iOS and Android, search Clusterfest in your smartphone’s app store.

Due to artist sensitivities, there will be restricted use of phones, cameras and other recording devices at Clusterfest. In general, you may not record comedy performances in any way, shape or form at this event. Failure to adhere to this rule will be grounds for ejection with no reentry. During certain performances, additional measures may be taken to ensure that no recording is captured from the audience.

Clusterfest partners with local nonprofits, including Larkin Street Youth Services, Downtown Streets and United Playaz by donating a portion of all festival ticket sales to help each organization support the San Francisco community.

Clusterfest has a zero-tolerance policy for harassment of any kind, including sexual harassment. Clusterfest wants every fan to feel safe at the event. We will not tolerate any harassment based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, body size, appearance, age or national origin.

We want everyone to have a good time, but it’s important to remember that sexual contact should always be consensual. Always ask before taking a photo, touching, or escalating any sexual or physical interaction and if someone says “no” to contact, stop immediately. Consent is ongoing and you can always say no, even if you previously said yes. If someone is too intoxicated, they are not capable of giving consent. Attendees, artists, comedians, vendors, and employees are encouraged to report any interaction that makes them uncomfortable in any way.

If you think you’ve been harassed, are the victim of nonconsensual touching, or otherwise feel unsafe at the event, please report it to the nearest event staff member or go to a Medical Tent for help. If you see someone who is too intoxicated or has been a victim of nonconsensual touching and needs help, seek immediate medical attention and notify safety personnel who are located at all times at the festival gates.

Clusterfest comedians are paid to share stories and thoughts that may be considered provocative or, by some, even offensive. You are not a comedian. Respect your fellow Clusterfest attendees, go laugh your ass off, and enjoy the show.
