FestivALL

#makefestivalsinclusive

We’re on a mission to make festivals inclusive to everyone – regardless of disability. Launching in 2022 at Witney Music Festival, FestivALL provides a safe space for people with autism, anxiety or learning disabilities to enjoy the festival with friends.

Why we’re launching FestivALL

We believe everyone should have access to the same opportunities, regardless of the disability they have. But most festivals tend to be inaccessible to people with a physical or learning disability. It can be hard to navigate the crowds or find a space for some downtime. Many of the people we support have told us that they have never been to a festival before.

This year we set out to change things. We’ve been working all year to make our vision a reality – the first VIP festival space reserved exclusively for people with disabilities. FestivALL is being launched at this year’s Witney Music Festival.

How FestivALL works

The FestivALL space is a VIP area within a music festival offering a place to enjoy the event in a comfortable environment. The FestivALL space includes:

  • A dedicated, wheelchair-accessible viewing platform so that you can see over the crowds to the main stage.
  • Fun and engaging activities to take part in through the day
  • A chill-out zone for those who want to take a break from the music
  • An accessible toilet block
  • A free festival bag containing essential festival gear

A team of staff and volunteers are available throughout the day to help, with a dedicated safeguarding lead, fire marshal and first aider available at all times.
