Disabled access at music festivals

ARoam Camping LİVE MUSİC İS FOR EVERYONE Going to a festival with a disability of any sort this year is significantly better than it was a few years back and is improving year on year. Wi Fi Online Help is available such as the events websites disabled access policy or contact information. You do have the right in law for UK based festivals that reasonable adjustments should be made to enable you to attend the event in an enjoyable way. Don't expect free parking or concession parking but you can expect closer parking to a public entrance. A shuttle bus from the parking area to the festivals disabled camping is becoming more available at many of the major festivals. TICKET To get a free carer ticket festival, you'll need your entrance ticket, and the chances are a second ticket for your assistant or carer is free. Many festivals these days are offering at least 1 extra ticket free of charge if you arrange for the ticket ahead of time. pre Most festivals have viewing platforms at music stages with access ramps for disabled people and their personal assistants (PAs). The platforms usually have lighting, an acces- sible toilet nearby and some seating for PAs. The larger festivals these days are starting to provide dedicated disabled camping areas with access generally by prior arrangement with a cut off date for requests. There is usually a camp steward who may be willing to help you put up your tent. Nearly all festivals will help you to charge up mobility and medical devices, so bringing or hiring a powerchair is not going to be a problem. The port-a-loo companies have both accessible toilets and showers available at the and the smaller festivals alike. You're virtually guaran- teed to find at least one of each in the disabled camping area and normally several around the site.
