The area has space for 7,000 cars but pre-booking at a cost of £8 per vehicle is strongly advised.
A shuttle bus will take fans to and from the concert. To book your parking for Ardleigh, call 0845 437 9089 or go to www.colutickets.com.
A shuttle bus service will also run from Bruff Close near North Station in Colchester costing £2 per person return.
And Colchester Rugby Club is also offering parking spaces. The club is a 15 minute walk from the stadium. Cars must be booked in advance at £5 per vehicle.
At the stadium, extra catering and drink outlets are being set up along with additional toilets.
