Get in formation for Beyoncé at FedEx Field: What to know about transportation, security, key times

Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour is finally arriving in the D.C. area. Here's what fans need to know about Metro, parking, security and — most importantly — when Queen Bey will start to slay on stage

NBC Universal, Inc.

The countdown is on for Beyoncé’s two Renaissance World Tour shows at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.

Tens of thousands of fans are getting in formation for Queen Bey’s first performance in Prince George’s County since her and Jay-Z’s 2018 “On The Run Tour.”

Beyoncé will dazzle the stadium with a capacity of over 80,000 on Saturday and Sunday.

Don’t miss the roll call — read up on the ticket info, bag rules and tips about getting there so you’re just left asking: Have you ever had fun like this?

Can you still get tickets to Beyoncé at FedEx Field?

Yes, you can get tickets on the resale market, but expect to hand over bills, bills, bills.

Ticketmaster Verified resale tickets were running upwards of $300 for nosebleeds and in the thousands for sections near the stage (hopefully right under Beyoncé’s flying disco horse) as of Friday morning. Ticketmaster guarantees that those tickets are “100% verified and issued in your name so they can't be counterfeited.”

When do the gates open, and when does Beyonce come on stage?

Here’s the schedule, according to FedEx Field:

  • 1:30 p.m.: parking lots open
  • 3:30 p.m.: VIP check in opens at Gate G
  • 4:30 p.m.: VIP early entry
  • 5 p.m.: All gates open
  • 8 p.m.: Show begins

There’s no opening act planned, but don't bank on the show starting at 8 p.m. sharp. According to, many Renaissance World Tour shows in the U.S. haven't started until about 8:45 to 9:30 p.m. The concerts last about two and a half hours.

Security and FedEx Field’s clear bag policy

Before you accessorize your Renaissance World Tour outfit, familiarize yourself with FedEx Field's clear bag policy.

Transportation to Beyoncé’s D.C.-area concert


The closest Metro stop is Morgan Boulevard along the Silver and Blue lines. It's about a mile away, or a 20- to 30-minute walk.

Metro will offer extended service on the Blue and Silver lines this weekend to help you get there, slay and find your way back.

After the concert on Sunday, Metro will run trains late to accommodate the Bey Hive — here are more details (Trains already run well past midnight after Saturday’s show, so fans shouldn’t have a problem there).

Check out WMATA's Trip Planner for more info.

Trains serving transfer stations connecting to the Blue and Silver lines will also offer extended service on Friday and Saturday nights, Metro also said.

Driving and parking

FedEx Field parking passes are sold separately and cost $65 for most vehicles as of Thursday. Here's more on parking, directions and rideshare pick-up/drop-off.


If you take an Uber or Lyft, make sure to tell your driver to go to the Red Zone Lot where the rideshare pick-up and drop-off section is located.
