– Free Personal Assistant ticket

Buying Tickets

All applicants will need to purchase a festival ticket on our ticket page. If you think you are eligible for a free Personal Assistant ticket to accompany you, do not buy a ticket for them. You can apply for this on the Access Application Form.

Access Application Form

Please click here to complete the Access Application Form and request use of the accessible facilities and free Personal Assistant ticket. We will respond within 14 days to the email address you provide. Your application isn’t approved until you receive an email from Love Supreme Festival.

Please note, we start dispatching the Access Accreditation on Thursday 10th June 2021. This allows us enough time to process all applications and send out final information and accreditation before the event. We will do our best to accommodate any late applications.

If you have any questions while filling out the form, please contact us at access@lovesupremefestival.co.uk

Personal Assistants

Personal Assistant (PA) tickets are provided so that customers who are unable to independently attend the festival can bring along someone who can provide the support needed at no extra cost. For that reason, we advise that your Personal Assistant must be able to carry out all support roles required, such as carrying your luggage between the car park and campsite and putting up your tent. The festival does not provide staff to do this for you. Please state the name and contact details of the PA on the Access Application Form.

Eligibility

In order to be eligible to use the accessible facilities and obtain a free PA ticket, we ask you to supply one of the following forms of supporting documentation:

– Front page of PIP
– Front page of DLA
– Deaf or Blind Registration
– CredAbility Access Card

There are two ways to send us your supporting documentation:
1) Email a scan or photo to access@lovesupremefestival.co.uk

2) Post a scan or photo to Love Supreme Festival Access Team, U-Live, 3 Pancras Square, London, N1C 4AG

The document must be dated in either 2019, 2020 or 2021 and state the full name of the customer with access requirements.

Please feel free to black-out any information on the documents that relate to the amount of benefits paid or health conditions.

All documents will be securely stored and then destroyed once the application has been processed.

Accreditation & Dispatch

To allow use of the various facilities onsite, Access Accreditation (such as wristbands and passes) will be issued. Access Accreditation plus Personal Assistant tickets will be posted out to applicants in advance of the festival using the postal address supplied in the Access Application Form. Please make sure you submit your full address.

Please note, festival tickets that have been purchased on our ticket page will be posted separately from the ticket agent they were ordered from.

Site Layout & Ground Conditions

The Love Supreme Festival site is generally accessible to visitors with mobility impairments. The land is reasonably level with a few inclines. However, please be aware that it is a green grass site with no hard-standing intersections. Between the arena and the Accessible Campsite, the Premium Campsite and the entry/exit to Glynde village, trackway has been laid across entrance ways to provide routes for event service vehicles. The trackway is 50mm deep and, in order to cross it, you will be required to make the small step up and down.
Please take the weather into consideration when planning what to bring and be aware that weather can have an impact on mobility due to the presence of mud. In some cases, if it is muddy, we may need to lay additional trackway or bark chippings in the most affected areas.

Accessible Car Park

There is an Accessible Car Park in the General Campsite car park. Please have your blue badge on display and inform the stewards that you would like to park there when you arrive.

If you don’t have a blue badge but someone in your party has a disability or a condition which means that they cannot travel very far from the car, please let our stewards know when you arrive. They will do their best to accommodate you in the Accessible Car Park.

The distance from Accessible Car Park to the Accessible Campsite is approximately 200 metres on a grass surface.

If you do intend to use the Accessible Car Park, please let us know on the Access Application Form so we can get an idea of numbers.

Please note, all drivers must purchase a Car Park Pass (either online from our ticket page or in cash on the day) to be able to park at the festival.

Accessible Campsite

We have a dedicated Accessible Campsite, with accessible toilets and showers, located within close reach of the main festival arena and approximately 200m from the Accessible Car Park.

The Accessible Campsite is for tent camping only. Cars are not allowed in the campsite and we do not offer power hook ups to individual tents.

Festival staff will not be able to provide physical assistance to move luggage between car parks and campsites, or to put up tents. If you require assistance of this nature, you must bring along a Personal Assistant who is capable of supporting your needs.

Please let us know if you would like to camp in the Accessible Campsite on the Access Application Form. Please note, there are no accessible facilities in the General or Premium campsites.

In addition to a Personal Assistant, you are allowed up to four guests to camp with you in the Accessible Campsite. Please advise of your numbers on the Access Application Form so we can accommodate your group.

Accessible Live-In Field

We have a dedicated Accessible Live-In Vehicle Field, with accessible toilets and showers, located within close reach of the main festival arena.

Please let us know if you would like to pitch your campervan in the Accessible Live-In Vehicle Field on the Access Application Form. Please note, there are no accessible facilities in the General Live-In Field.

You will need to buy a Live-In User Ticket for each member of your party, as well as a Live-In Vehicle Field Pitch Ticket for your vehicle from our ticket page.

The Accessible Live-In Vehicle Field is for live-in vehicles that are genuinely built or adapted for sleeping. Please also make sure you read our full Live-In Vehicle regulations info here.

Please use the Access Application Form to advise the number of people staying in the Live-In Vehicle in addition to the applicant and Personal Assistant. Please note, only one Live-In Vehicle per application.

If you do want to pitch your Live-In Vehicle in the Accessible Live-In Vehicle Field and want to have an electric hook-up, please purchase Live-In Vehicle pitch with Power from our ticket page and make sure you let us know on the Access Application Form. Please purchase the correct size Live-In Vehicle Pitch for your set-up.

Directions for how to reach the Accessible Live-In Vehicle Field will be sent out in advance.

Premium/Supremium

There are no accessible facilities in the Premium Campsite. If you have a Premium Camping ticket but require accessible facilities, we recommend you camp in the Accessible Campsite. Please let us know on the Access Application Form.

If you do choose to camp in the Accessible Campsite, we also recommend you don’t park in the Premium car park as this is situated at the South Entrance, on the opposite side of the site to the Accessible Campsite. You should park in the Accessible Car Park.

Supremium in the festival arena will have accessible toilets. Only guests with Supremium tickets can access this area.

Welfare, Medical & Info

The Medical and Info & Welfare Tents are open 24/7 throughout the festival and located inside the main festival arena, approx. 100 metres from the Accessible Campsite.

If you require use of the Welfare Tent’s charging facilities for a wheelchair or refrigeration for medical items, please request this via the Access Application Form.

Our Access Manager is located at the Welfare & Info Tent and will be happy to assist you with answering questions and providing information throughout the weekend.
