However, if you want to get there by public transport, the best option is Line 9 (brown) of the Metro from CDMX. The Foro Sol is just down from the Ciudad Deportiva station.

There are several parking options and they are different from each other. Firstly, there is the exclusive parking lot at Foro Sol. To use this service, we recommend arriving early to the concert, as parking spaces are quite limited and fill up quickly.

You can find the parking lots in the entrances of doors 6, 7, 8, 9 and 15. Likewise, the service has a cost of at least 200 pesos Mexicans. If you decide to leave your car here, we recommend leaving the event as quickly as possible to avoid long lines.

If you decide not to use this service, in the streets surrounding Foro Sol there are several private parking lots whose costs can reach up to 500 pesos. Likewise, some people allow you to leave your car outside their house and they take care of it, for a much more affordable price.

If you are going to attend the event we recommend be patient at departure timeBecause there are hundreds of thousands of people, evacuating the premises is quite complicated. If you have the opportunity to leave as soon as the last song is over, do so, as this will avoid the long lines.

If you decide to wait, it is always better to allow people to leave earlier so that there are fewer crowds. Always remember take good care of your personal belongingssince it is at this time when pickpockets usually appear.
