Disabled

The Isle of Wight Festival will no longer be taking place this year. This decision has not been taken lightly and we have tried our hardest to make it work, but it was unavoidable given the current status. The whole team was excited to welcome everyone to the island for another fantastic festival and we extend our sincere apologies to everyone who was looking forward to it as much as we were. Please see our full statement.

For specific disabled access enquiries please email IOWDisabled@solo.uk.com. 

There is a designated camping field with its own car park, special access loos and showers, HDU and wheelchair charging. Although the site is mostly flat and generally easy to get around, please be aware that the ground conditions may cause problems in certain areas. If you would like to bring a campervan and camp in the Disabled Campsite please purchase a campervan permit through the Ticketmaster website after choosing "Weekend Accessible Ticket". Please do not turn up on spec in a campervan without a permit as we will not be able to accommodate you.

If you are disabled and want to camp in the Main Campsite, you can still apply for a carer ticket and to use the disabled loos around the site.

There are viewing platforms for Disabled customers next to the Main Stage and in the Big Top. You can apply for a space on the viewing platform, whether you are a Camper or a Non-Camper, but please be aware that the platforms work on a first come first served basis and there may be times when the platform is busy. The Disabled A access wristband entitles you and a carer (if you have one) access to the viewing platform. Please do not apply for the platform (Disabled A access wristband) unless you are a wheelchair user or have difficulty standing as there is limited space. Please note the Platforms are NO SMOKING areas, this includes e-cigarettes & vapes.

If you are coming to the Festival as a Non Camper you can park your car in the main Festival car parks. You can buy your car parking ticket on the day, but we recommend that you book it in advance when buying your Festival ticket. Please be aware that the car parks are located a fair distance from the main entertainment fields.

Alternatively, you can arrange to be dropped off at Gate A6 and enter the Festival from there which brings you into the Main Arena.

The parking spaces in a car park behind the Main Stage at Gate A6 are now fully booked. Please be aware that these are allocated on a first come first served basis and customers in wheelchairs and with walking difficulties will be prioritised.

Disabled customers are entitled to apply for one free carer ticket. The carer must be at least 18 years as at 11 June 2020. The role of the carer is to accompany and assist the disabled customer. Should it be apparent that this role is not being carried out Festival staff have the right to eject you from the Festival. Carers should familiarise themselves with the Festival site and facilities so they can assist the disabled customer fully during their time at the Festival.

Please do not buy a ticket for your carer as this will NOT be refunded.
