I'm Disabled, what help is there?
There will be as much assistance as Solfest can provide on a case-by-case basis. There is no concession for a disabled person but you may bring a carer free of charge. Please purchase the tickets you require (adult, young persons, children and Thursday camping) with the exception of the Carers’ ticket. Then when you arrive on site present your Middle-Level Disability Living Allowance paperwork to Solfest's ticketing fairies and they will furnish you with your extra adult ticket. Solfest can provide electric hookups for powered wheelchairs but please contact the festival in advance to arrange this, or for more information.
