Elton John plan your visit

Swansea City are excited to welcome Sir Elton John to the Swansea.com Stadium on Wednesday (June 29).

With a large crowd expected, we are issuing an urgent appeal to concert-goers to seriously consider their travel requirements for the event and plan their journey accordingly.

All on-site parking has now SOLD OUT, and with limited parking options within the immediate local area of the Swansea.com Stadium, concert-goers should review the options available to them and organise in advance of the event.

In addition to the above, concert-goers should review road closures in place on the day of the event. There is more information on these below.

Concert-goers who are planning to be dropped off/picked up within the local area should also see below for details on where to safely do this.

Important notice

We would like to remind concert-goers that anyone wishing to book any of the options below for parking and travel will need to set up an online account first. The quickest and easiest way to do that is HERE.

FABIAN WAY PARK AND RIDE

Due to high demand, there is a park and ride service in operation for this event. The overspill car park at Fabian Way Park and Ride site is available for pre-booked parking only. There is a limited amount of parking currently available which is selling quickly, and we highly advise booking early to avoid disappointment. This is charged at £15 per vehicle.

For clarity, this car park is to the left hand side of the roundabout, on the Park and Ride site on Fabian Way (SA1 8PA).   

Tickets for this car park can be pre-booked online through the Swansea City ticketing site by clicking HERE

Please note the first coach will depart the park and ride site at 4.15pm and will operate regularly. 

Pre-booking for this service is urged as we cannot guarantee if spaces will be available on the day. 

SWANSEA HIGH STREET MULTI-STOREY CAR PARK

Parking is also available at Swansea High Street multi-storey car park (SA1 1NU), and is a 25 minute walk to the stadium. This car park holds over 700 spaces at a cost of £2.

We advise concert-goers to exit the car park via the rear on New Cut Road (A483), and from there use Morfa Road, which will take you all the way to the Swansea.com Stadium.   

There is also an option for concert-goers using this car park, to take advantage of the Turners return coach shuttle service. This coach service will pick concert-goers up from High Street outside Swansea Railway station and drop them at the stadium at a cost of £5 per head. The shuttle service will pick up concert-goers on conclusion of the event within the stadium vicinity.

Please note it is essential to pre-book the shuttle service if required as you will be unable to pay on the day.
