We look forward to welcoming you to Ashton Gate! 


Bristol’s Clean Air Zone (CAZ) is now live and concert-goers driving by car are encouraged to check whether they will be affected. Non-compliant vehicles will be charged between £9 and £100 per day to drive through the zone in central Bristol.

Although Ashton Gate itself sits just outside of the zone, some roads near the stadium are within it and thus we encourage fans to carefully plan their journey. Full details on the CAZ including maps, a schedule of charges and a vehicle compliance checker can be found at www.cleanairforbristol.org/caz/.


Ashton Road will be closed from 3pm-2am on May 29th.

Winterstoke Road will be closed from 9pm until midnight on May 29th.


***Update 26.05.23: All shuttle bus tickets have now sold out. Why not enjoy the sun and avoid event traffic by walking from the city centre (just 30 minutes)***

Concert-goers are urged to take advantage of event special Shuttle Buses laid on for Arctic Monkeys at Ashton Gate Stadium.

With road closures, temporary parking suspensions and Resident Parking Schemes in place on the day of the concert, there will be no parking near the stadium.

Our Shuttle Buses are the fastest and greenest way of getting to the stadium and will be operated by First West of England Ltd frequently between 3pm – 7pm.

First Bus is operating four routes to and from the stadium:

ROUTE 1: Portway Park & Ride – SOLD OUT

ROUTE 2: Brislington Park & Ride – SOLD OUT

ROUTE 3: Temple Meads and the City Centre – SOLD OUT

ROUTE 4: The Mall, Cribbs Causeway – SOLD OUT

Post-event Shuttle Buses will depart from near the stadium on Winterstoke Road when full and return to collect any remaining passengers.

Shuttle Buses get priority once the concert finishes and are the only vehicles allowed inside the road closures. Parking at the Shuttle Bus terminals is free except for Route 3 (Temple Meads and the City Centre), you just need to pay for the bus journey.

Tickets are subject to availability and likely to sell-out. Book Now.
