VIP Customers

The Ruisrock VIP ticket includes water bus transport from Turku city centre to the festival area and back.

The water buses depart from the Aura River at Läntinen Rantakatu 37. The pier is located about 200 metres from Martinsilta bridge in the direction of the Port of Turku. From the Marina Palace hotel, you can reach the pier by walking along the Aura River away from the city centre. The water bus is only accessible with a VIP pass and wristband, and the festival security check is carried out when boarding the water bus. 

The water buses run non-stop according to the following schedule:

  • On Friday 8 July, the first departure from the city centre is at 1:30 pm and the last departure from Ruissalo back to the city centre is at 03:30 am.
  • On Saturday 9 July, the first departure from the city centre is at 12:30 pm and the last departure from Ruissalo back to the city centre is at 03:30 am.
  • On Sunday 10 July, the first departure from the city centre is at 12:30 pm and the last departure from Ruissalo back to the city centre is at 03:30 am.

During the festival we will be operating several water buses of different sizes. Nevertheless, during peak hours, there may be congestion both on arrival at the festival and on departure. The journey by water bus to the festival area takes about 25 minutes, and the peak hours are around 1–2 hours after the festival opens and about an hour before the festival closes. Unfortunately, it is not possible to arrive in Ruissalo by car or boat.

Ruisrock VIP customers are also entitled to free bicycle parking and cloakroom service at the main gate of the festival area.
