Wheelchair Access
Wheelchair access varies from venue to venue. To check a venue's wheelchair accessibility, look for the wheelchair access symbol alongside an event listing. Midsumma relies on accurate information provided by the more than 100 venues that are part of the Festival. We recommend contacting the venue to confirm wheelchair accessibility and to enquire about accessible parking.

  • General Admission Wheelchair Access: if you are booking tickets for a General Admission venue, feel free to go ahead and book online unless it is otherwise mentioned in the event listing. There is a section in the booking process where you can make access notes. Midsumma tries to assist venues to be as accessible as possible and this information will be passed on to them about your requirements.
  • Allocated Seating Wheelchair Access: if you are booking tickets for a venue with allocated seating, please book through the venue directly.
