Love Saves the Day welcomes all deaf and disabled festival-goers and aims to provide accessible facilities to ensure that the event can be enjoyed by as many people as possible. We are working harder than ever to make the event as accessible as possible.
The following information provides details about the accessible provision at the event. If you have any questions that are not answered below please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For disabled customers who do not require use of any of the accessible facilities, please click here to purchase your ticket. If you would you like to register for use of any of these accessible facilities:
- PA Ticket
- Main Stage Viewing Platform
- Accessible Parking
- Accessible Toilets
- Lowered bar areas
If you require the form in an alternative format please contact us. The accessible facilities will only be available to ticket holders who have pre-registered their requirements. To ensure that we have time to put appropriate provisions in place on site, please complete the form no later than 1 month before the event. Information Packs will be sent out to anyone who has successfully registered at least a week before the event.
Please Note: Love Saves The Day is on a green-field site (Eastville Park), with some tarmac paths on the peripheral entrances and exits. While there are some sheltered areas (some stalls and marquees), it is mainly an open-air event. Ground conditions are therefore weather dependant (if we experience extreme weather the ground may become muddy), therefore mobility across the site may become compromised. We ask you to consider this before purchasing a ticket.
There will be induction loops at the Main Accessibility Wristband Exchange as well as the lowered bar areas across site.
Please note that strobe effects may be used at this event however, there will not be any specific announcements prior to their use.
Medical Services and Welfare Area
We have an onsite Medical Tent with trained First Aiders by The British Red Cross. We also have an Information and Welfare Area which can be used by our accessible ticket holders should they need a moment of calm.
If you have any queries, please contact email@example.com or call 0117 941 1611.
Please note: The disabled access facilities are for festival goers with permanent disabilities – pregnant women and people with recent injuries such as broken legs do not qualify.

We advise looking at hotel, Airbnb or hostel options in the centre of Bristol and taking the small commute on our Love Bus (see above) to the festival site each day.
All tented structures have a set capacity that cannot be exceeded by law. If there’s a particular act you are desperate to see then make sure you get down with time to spare. If an arena is full then we suggest finding an alternative stage to enjoy.
This is located in the Information Tent, next to the main gate and it will be open throughout the festival. the cloakroom cost is £2 per item.

There is a 12-hour medical centre just inside the main gate that is manned by fully qualified staff. Please make yourself aware with it’s as you enter the festival. The welfare tent is located just inside the main gate. If you need to grab a quiet five minutes or just want someone to talk to, the welfare tent provides a safe and non-judgemental space to do this.
Full emergency services at the festival include:
- Police • Ambulance • Fire Services
If you need any assistance DO NOT call 999 as we have everything needed on site. This could unnecessarily tie up services from a nearby town. There are an ample number of Stewards and Security on site who can be alerted to call upon for any emergency services or assistance necessary.
If you suspect somebody is unwell take him or her to the first aid tent. If in severe cases they are not moving, please do not attempt to move them and alert a Steward immediately who will call for the exact help needed. If you take any medication regularly remember to bring it with you and make your friends aware of any illness or allergies you may have. Look after yourself and those around you.

Please make sure that you do use the loos provided and not the ground of the park or surrounding area as this can be harmful to local wildlife. There are ample toilet facilities on site and just outside that are cleaned and restocked throughout the day. We all know that festival loos can be a bit of an ordeal so please do your bit by leaving them as you’d like to find them!

Please be aware that at the end of the festival there will be thousands of people leaving the site at the same time. If you are pre-arranging a collection, then consider making your pick-up point at an easily recognisable landmark a short distance away as roads directly around the site will be closed.
Trains – The event bus service will be running directly to site from Bristol’s main station (Temple Meads) and this will be the easiest way to get to the festival from there.
The closest local train station to the site is Stapleton Road.
Please see www.nationalrail.co.uk for train times.
Parking – There is absolutely no public parking available at the event so please do not bring your car. Anyone parking illegally or irresponsibly near the site will have his or her vehicle towed.
We recommend taking some easy steps to maximise your enjoyment of the day.
Keep money, mobile phones and cameras on your person at all times. If you suspect you have had something stolen, please check with the Information Tent to see if it has been handed in before reporting it to the police.
Exercise common sense when it comes to bringing along valuables- if you don’t need it, don’t bring it!
Make yourself aware of the location of the emergency exits, and follow any instructions given to you by security or stewards. In the unlikely event that you witness dangerous or antisocial behaviour move away and alert security if they are not already in the immediate vicinity.
Volunteer stewarding and bar shifts are available at the festival. More information will be available soon.
