Services for disabled people are managed by the Accessibility Team. We are based in the Accessible Camping Area (ACA), but work across the whole festival site. You do not have to be camped in the ACA in order to use our services or to contact us for help and advice. Please do come and see us. The more that we know about services that you would like and any problems encountered around site, the more we can help everyone to enjoy the festival.

The Accessibility Team do our best to help onsite, but we have found that the biggest factor in having a good time at a festival is the planning that you do yourself. Think through every aspect of how you will live on a campsite on a daily basis and plan ahead. The information here will help you but if you need more specific advice please contact us and we will try to advise you.
