A Blue Badge car park will operate at the events. Spaces within the blue badge car park are limited, must be pre-booked, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. To apply please fill out the access booking form.
Please note that Blue Badge parking spaces for City Splash on 29th May and Jubilation on 2nd June are now full.

Event Space and Site
The show takes place in Brockwell Park. The area is predominantly grass, with limited hard standing pathways. All activities and stages are situated on the grass fields of the park.
Such terrain can become muddy in wet weather and this can limit access or make mobility more difficult. The weather can have a big impact on how easy it is for people to move around the site so please take this into consideration when planning your day.
Although there are some tarmac tracks on the festival site, these do not run into the stages (which all stand on grass). All road systems leading to the centre of the park from the entrances run up a slight gradient.
Both General Admission entrances at all Brockwell Live events have dedicated Access Lanes, both 1.2m wide or greater.
Viewing platforms are available at the Main Stage and The Big Top stage.
The viewing platforms are designed for wheelchair users and others for whom the standing area is not suitable, plus one companion or PA ticket-holder if required, and will be available on a first come first served basis. A wristband will be required to gain access to the viewing platforms. To apply for access to the viewing platforms, please fill out the access booking form. On arrival, please collect your wristband from the Welfare Tent.
Please note that the Main Stage viewing platform is uncovered, so please prepare for all weather conditions.
Accessible toilets and wheelchair charging points will be available at each viewing platform.
Power points are available at the Welfare Tent and at each Accessible Viewing Platform.
Accessible toilets are located at each Viewing Platform, the Welfare Tent and at each toilet block except the Main Stage, where the main accessible toilet is located at the accessible viewing platform. These will be clearly indicated on the Access Map.
There are seven main bars at the event and lowered counters will be available at each.
Please note that some of our sponsored bars are not able to provide lowered counters so where possible they will offer an alternative serving policy.
Please ask our staff for help.
Food cannot be brought into the festival. If you have specific Dietary Requirements please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can provide you with an exemption letter so you are able to bring food onto site, enough for your own consumption only.
If you need to store medicine, you can store it in the fridge in the Treatment centre, please go to the Welfare tent where someone will be able to assist you.
All the Brockwell Live shows are standing only. There is some seating across the site however this is limited and is within picnic areas only. Personal chairs and stools are not permitted. If seating is compulsory to your enjoyment of the event due to medical circumstances, you may apply for access to our viewing platforms via the access booking form. Please note that seating is limited on the accessible viewing platforms and will be granted on a first come first served basis. All access customers are permitted to use the fast track access entrance lane, located at both public entrances.
Due to the nature of the event there will be flashing lights and strobe effects on all stages. Lasers may be used for some performances.
This is a space that people can use when they need to get away from the crowd for a while. It is located in the Welfare Tent.
We welcome assistance dogs to the event, as long as they have been specifically trained to assist you, only use the toilet in a designated spending area and behave in a way that is appropriate around other customers. If you are planning to bring your assistance dog, we ask that you let us know by completing the online access booking form in advance so we can give you any necessary information and to enable us to plan to ensure you have the best experience possible
