The festival is held at Raehills Estate which is a greenfields site with varying conditions, there are some hardcore paths throughout but most of the festival takes place on grassland so all terrain wheelchairs would be required. Most of the festival is also open air so ground conditions are heavily effected by the weather, if its rainy then expect there to be mud. The boardwalk stage is in the woodland on rougher ground amongst the trees, and the paths are created from woodchip so this area may be difficult to navigate in wheelchairs even in good weather. There are no accessible toilets in the woodland area due to no vehicle access. All over site at night time lighting is low level due instalations.
We supply a medical fridge and safe storage in the Medical & Welfare Tent. Please bring your medication in a clearly labelled container and you will be asked to sign it in and out. Even if you do not need to use medical storage, visit our helpful medical team and let them know of any medical issues or equipment you use and where you are camped so that we can assist you should the need arise. Your information will be kept confidential.
We have a dedicated assessible campsite and car park which is located by the main arena and all Personal Assistant Ticket holders will be contacted before the festival to find out if you require a spot to be saved for you.
