Ability Fest 2023
**2 tickets now available**
Ability Fest Returns!
Join us for a music-filled day amongst friends, at our new home in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD — Birrarung Marr.
Ability Fest is proudly Australia’s first all accessible music festival and one of the leading inclusive events in the country, brought to you by the Dylan Alcott Foundation & Untitled Group.
A music festival first and foremost, but with the added perk of incorporating more accessibility features so that everyone can enjoy the universal love of live music. A non-for-profit event, our common goal is to raise money for the Dylan Alcott Foundation to help empower young people living with disability to achieve their ambitions.
The festival oasis is located at Naarm/Melbourne’s Birrarung Marr, an urban space embracing civic life and community involvement with sweeping city skyline views and lush greenery. You can expect all your usual festival amenities like delicious food & drink options, shade, unique experiences and unforgettable music experiences across two stages, with the added bonus of Birrarung Marr being transformed into a completely accessible venue. Elevated platforms, pathways, a dedicated sensory area, quiet zones, companion ticketing, ramps, friendly volunteers, Auslan interpreters, accessible toilets help make Ability an inclusive and enjoyable environment for all music lovers.
Conceptualised by Dylan Alcott … Ability Fest uses music as common ground and a platform to help normalise disability whilst setting a standard for inclusion and diversity at events.
Ability Fest It is a leading example of the direction music festivals need to be working towards. Being a part of this day is an experience that money can’t buy as our community bands together to make an impact and change lives.
