ACCESS APPLICATIONS FOR FESTIVAL NO.6 2018 NOW OPEN
ACCESS AROUND THE SITE
The festival is held in Portmeirion, a stunning and historic village located between the mountains of Snowdonia and the Irish Sea. Beautiful to behold the landscape does however pose some potential mobility difficulties. For topographical and historic reasons some areas of Portmeirion are not totally accessible to all.
The Village is built on the coast and whilst the roads and pathways make most areas of the Village accessible to wheelchair users, there are several areas in Portmeirion where steep slopes and steps cannot be accessed easily and may prove difficult for wheelchair users. Please note: the road down to the main hotel is quite steep and could present problems.
There is an existing hard standing road that runs next to the Accessible Campsite. The Accessible Car Park is located off the festival site at the nearby park and ride. We have made provisions to ensure this is as accessible as possible for those with accessible parking requirements. The ground leading from the accessible car park and campsite to the Main Arena entrance consists of gravel road and grass. The distance is approximately 400 metres. The Main Arena is 300 metres from the main gate to the furthest perimeter edge.
Please also note that weather conditions can dramatically affect the ground conditions, so wherever possible try to consider what preparations you may need to make and equipment you may need to bring along.
YOU MAY APPLY FOR THE FOLLOWING FACILITIES IN ADVANCE USING THE APPLICATION FORM
1) 2 FOR 1 TICKETS FOR PERSONAL ASSISTANTS

2) ACCESSIBLE PARKING PASS
The Accessible Car Park is located off the festival site at a nearby park and ride. If you request an accessible parking pass, you will be granted temporary access to the festival site to drop off any party members and luggage at the Access Campsite before parking your vehicle at the park and ride. You will then be granted priority parking and travel to and from the festival.
3) VIEWING PLATFORM WRISTBAND
A viewing platform with a stewarded accessible toilet is located within the Main Stage tent. In order to gain access to the viewing platform, you need a viewing platform wristband. This also comes with a lanyard that can be worn by a personal assistant or companion so that they can join you on the platform.
4) ACCESSIBLE CAMPING WRISTBAND
On arrival Thursday and Friday, there will be an Access Information Point in the accessible campsite where customers can collect further information on access within the festival site. It is also here that additional pre agreed wristbands can be collected.
There will be a number of accessible toilets and an accessible shower within the campsite.
An Accessible Campsite wristband will allow you to access the campsite village services (bars, concessions and welfare) however please note that due to the layout and topography of the site this is some distance from the Accessible Campsite.
