About the Dreamfest
When: Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 7:00pm – 10:00pm
Where: AT&T Park
How to you get there: It’s an easy 20 minute walk from Moscone Center, or you can take the Muni from the Powell Street Station on either the K or T lines to King and 2nd Streets for under $3.00.
What to Bring, What NOT to Bring, and Other Important Details
Bring your Dreamforce badge. That’s your ticket into the show. Without it, your only way into the show would be to purchase a ticket here in support the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals. Of course if you want to upgrade your experience, buy the ticket anyway! You will get access to the club level at AT&T Park as well as admission to the After Party at Pier 48 featuring will.i.am and MC Hammer.
Bring your government issued ID. For anyone looking young, they will be checking your ID if you want an adult beverage.
Bring a jacket, or wear layers. AT&T Park is right on the water, and it can get cold and breezy there.
Do NOT bring a backpack, your laptop,or anything else that can’t fit inside your purse or pocket. If you don’t have time to make it back to your hotel before the show, there will be a bag check station set up at Moscone West where you can safely leave your belongings. Don’t worry, you can get them back after the show. The bag check will be open until midnight.
Most importantly – stay at the concert as long as you like, but be aware that once you leave, you can not return. Even with your Dreamforce badge, you can only enter once. They are not allowing in-and-out privileges.
