There are two entrances to the festival area: one in front of Ratina Shopping Center and the other beside the Laukontori bridge. Both entrances are unobstructed and paved with asphalt. We recommend using the Laukontori bridge entrance, especially when arriving with a personal assistant.

Blockfest does not provide a specific parking area adjacent to the festival area. Please see parking areas for the city center from the City of Tampere webpage.


Entrance to the festival area is free for personal assistants to wheelchair users and other guests requiring assistance. Specific persona assistant wristbands are distributed near the Laukontori bridge entrance. Exact location is updated closer to the event.

Blockfest is held at Ratina Stadium and the surrounding area. The festival area is mainly paved and flat.

All Blockfest’s stages are accessible. Apart from the Stadium Stage’s specific accessible stand, there are no separate wheelchair platforms near the stages. Due to safety reasons, people with mobility impairments are not permitted in the pit area in front of stages.

Accessible bathrooms can be found in all bathroom zones.

A separate map of accessibility and related services will be updated to this page closer to the event.
