The latest news is that the city is trying to put together a satellite parking location at the San Augustine airport. They are also working out the logistics for at least five shuttle routes to move concertgoers and locals throughout the city. The proposed shuttle routes would be:
- St Augustine Airport parking lot to Francis Field
- Downtown to St Augustine Beach
- Downtown to Crescent Beach/ SR 206
- Downtown to World Golf Village
- Downtown to SR 16
The shuttles run all day until 3 AM in the morning. Shuttle buses will run every 15 to 30 minutes. The cost for a two day shuttle pass will be $15.00. There is also a bike plan proposed. Whether you are visitor or a local there will be designated bike valet areas to Park your bike. There will be some road closures on the days of the event. Orange Street and Castillo will be closed to all traffic. If you are resident you will also need identification to get into several neighborhoods north and south of Francis Field.
Lawn chairs will not be permitted in Francis Field. You are allowed to bring a towel to sit on. You are also allowed to bring a stroller if need be, but as the police chief said, “you better have a baby in it.”
Concertgoers will be able to come and go in and out of the concert on both days. This is wonderful news. Between this and the shuttle service those attending the concert will be able to visit our beautiful beaches and our many restaurants and bars in the historic downtown area. Many bars and restaurants will be joining in the festivities and having special Mumford and Sons promotional events.

The locals here in St. Augustine have a vision too, we want you to fall in love with our history, architecture, and people. We want you to come back again and again and make this place your home.
