Coburg Velodrome – 7th April 2018
Event: Ability Fest
Venue: Coburg Velodrome
Date: 7th April 2018
Triple J presenter and Paralympian Dylan Alcott launched the inaugural Ability Fest Day on 7th April 2018. The event was designed to create an inclusive festival welcoming everyone, regardless of age, mobility, gender or race, to hang out or perform at a music festival. 100% of the proceeds go to helping Australians with disabilities.
With an attendance of 5,000 people, the event raised close to $200,000 for the Dylan Alcott Foundation, which in turn will put the money into programs assisting young disabled people. Alcott said it had been an enormous success and plans had already started for the 2019 event.
Given the location of the event, temporary event equipment needed to be sought. With all the different safety requirements and mobility access challenges, specialist care needed to be taken for event management and patrons alike.
No Fuss Event Hire was engaged to provide temporary flooring for wheelchair access, pedestrian walkways and pathway access.
“Ability Fest was created to be a fully accessible music festival where no one cares about race, gender or disability and everyone just enjoys the music.” – Dylan Alcott
