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.

There is unobstructed access to the upper level of the area, but unfortunately there is no access to the lower level for customers requiring wheelchairs.
