One Love Festival – Policy for Equality and Accessibility
One Love Festival wants to share the experience of this event with all who have an interest in reggae/dub music. We will treat everyone with fairness and tolerance. This means equal treatment and opportunity for staff, crew and volunteers as well as the ticket buying public . We will not discriminate against anyone attending because of their gender or sexual persuasion, their age or appearance, their race or religion, their physical or mental abilities. All are welcome.
As much as possible, this open air, camping music festival site will feature facilities to help enable the attendance of those with access issues or other needs and requirements. We will have the following:
- Blue Badge parking area. This will be a section of the car park as closest to the festival ticket gate and entrance way for those with a genuine need for close access
- Campsite area set aside for those with access or other particular needs. This will be the area closest to the entrance way to the Main Arena
- Accessible toilets – both in the campsite and in the Main Arena
- Accessible food & trade stalls – all traders will be given guidance on how to best make their stall easy to access or menus/price lists easy to read
- Support from our medics – do you need to refrigerate medicines? Need a place to plug in breathing apparatus or a mobility chair/scooter? Let us know.
- Support from our welfare crew – need help getting your camping gear on site? Or assistance reading the programme schedule? As long as you let us know how to help, we will.
