We want Truck Festival to be accessible to everyone and in 2017 we began our working relationship with Attitude is Everything, a disability-led charity that improves deaf and disabled people’s access to live music.
In our first year of working with AIE we were awarded Bronze and since then we have gone on to achieve a Silver award for our ongoing commitment to accessibility.
As a festival, we know that to truly champion accessibility and be one of the industry standard leaders, we need to strive to improve year on year and continue to meet the needs and requirements of all our customers. This is something we are fully committed to doing and our aim is to be awarded Gold in 2022.
We hope you find the information below useful!
Truck Festival takes place at Hill Farm, on a greenfield farm site.
The majority of the site is flat and the terrain is grass. We ask that you pack for all weather conditions when preparing to join us at Truck, the site can get muddy when wet.
Please be aware strobe lighting will be used in many artists’ sets. There will not be a warning immediately before a period of strobe lighting.

Truck kindly asks that you don’t bring your own food and drink into the Main Arena, however, if you have any specific dietary requirements due to health conditions please complete an Access Application to be pre-approved by the Access Team. This will avoid confiscation of food and drink in advance of your arrival.
If you require prescriptive medication with you during your time at the festival, please complete an Access Application to be pre-approved by the Access Team. This will ensure that security are aware that you will be bringing this to the event. Please ensure all medication is kept in a clear polythene bag as it may need to be inspected upon arrival.
We operate on a case by case basis as we appreciate that everyone has different access requirements and we want everyone to have a great time at Truck.
