HOW TO BUY ACCESS TICKETS 

You can apply for the 2-for-1 PA Ticket Scheme.

If a child is under the age of 12 at the time of the festival and requires a PA Ticket please contact the organisers direct.

Latitude is promoted by Festival Republic, the same guys behind Reading and Leeds. To save you having to complete a form for every Festival Republic event you fancy going to disabled people can sign up to join their customer database free of charge.

Once you are on the Festival Republic Disabled Customer Database your details will stay on the system for the next three years.

To join the database select the option when you complete an Access Requirement Form for any Festival Republic event – Please bear in mind you must be over 16 to sign up.

You must submit a copy of one of the following to join the database, apply for a PA ticket and to use the accessible facilities onsite

  • DLA (Care and / or mobility)
  • PIP (Personal Independence Payment)
  • A Medical professionals letter (To be reviewed case by case)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment
  • War Disablement Pension
  • D/deaf or blind registration
  • The Nimbus Access Card
  • Blue Badge (Permitted for parking requests only)

The promoters promise they won’t share your details with any marketing firms.

You will not have to re-join the database until your three year period runs out.

You can’t join the scheme if you have a temporary impairment.

You can join the database whenever you want and the Access Team will aim to reply to your emails within four weeks.

ON-SITE

If you are successful applying for access at the festival you will receive an Access Guide before the event with details of

  • Arrival Information
  • Site Changes and Updates
  • Access Maps (including route distances, charging points, accessible toilet and platform locations and more)
  • Opening Times
  • Access Facilities and more

You are advised to print a hard copy of the Access Guide and bring it with you.

The access facilities are not available to those with a temporary illness, although you are permitted to bring camping chairs and of course, you can take advantage of the grandstand seating which is located towards the back of the Obelisk Arena. 

If this will be your first time at Latitude please bear in mind in some areas you’ll find yourself on a sloping surface, although there’s no hard ground to contend with. The site is divided by a lake, but don’t worry – you won’t need your trunks. The water can be crossed by the two bridges with a felt covering at both ends making wheelchair access easier. 

 As you can appreciate venturing into the woodland area can be difficult for guests with severe walking difficulties and wheelchairs. You can access the Access campsite through here via a rough earth pathway. 

If walking isn’t your thing you can take advantage of the Festaxi which shuttles guests with disabilities to and from the disabled campsite to the main arena gate and the village. PA’s are allowed to jump on board as well although they may be asked for a small donation.

Access guests are advised to follow the road signs to the accessible campsite and car park. Upon arrival you can collect your wristbands and PA lanyard at the access customer check-in.

You must apply for accessible parking in advance via the Access Requirements Form.

You can also apply for a Drop Off Pass via the Access Requirement Form so you can drop off your luggage at the accessible campsite which is less than 50 metres away, for the duration of your stay. If you are camping in a group of four or more people and wish to stay together please pitch your tent in one of the public campsites. 

Those who have purchased campervan permits for the disabled campsite should be aware there are no electrical hook ups on site. 

Access guests will be given a wristband upon arrival and a PA lanyard which allows them to take one person at a time onto the viewing platforms which are situated at the main stage, comedy tent and the BBC Sounds stage. 

Access toilets can be found at the viewing platforms, medical tent, public toilet blocks and of course, in the disabled campsite. You will also find adapted showers in the accessible campsite. 

Some performances will include a BSL Interpreting Service, you will find the schedule in the Access Guide.

Hearing Loops will be installed at the Disabled access check in and some of the viewing platforms, details will be found in the Access Guide.
