First Line Up Announcement Monday 29th November!   /  

Access

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, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected]

2022 Access Applications are now live!
