The fully accessible event will ensure everyone has a good time with elevated viewing platforms, pathways, quiet zones, a designated sensory area, companion ticketing and AUSLAN interpreters.

“Ability Fest started as a place to bring friends together to enjoy good quality live music – no matter what your access challenges may be. Today, four years in, we have created an event that sets a new standard in the festival world, and shows others what is possible,” said Alcott.

“I want to give young people with disability the opportunity to experience the magic of a music festival which previously may not have been possible for them, and raise a hell of a lot of money in the process,” he added.

Since launching Ability Fest in 2017, the Dylan Alcott Foundation has raised over $300,000 for Australians living with a disability.

This year’s even is supported by the Australian Government through their RISE grant program and City of Melbourne.
