The coach drop off point is off Richfield Avenue, approximately a 10-15 minute walk to the Green Day Gate.
Day ticket holders should expect queues at the Green Day Gate. There is a short walk to the arena so day ticket holders should arrive with plenty of time in advance of the first act that they wish to see – no refunds will be given for acts missed.
