Blue Badge Parking

There are four Blue Badge car parking spaces available at the Brockwell Lido car park. Please note that this is a Pay and Display Car Park, and that Blue Badges must be displayed in your vehicle window. You may apply for an additional hour’s parking free of charge at the Brockwell Lido reception. 

If you have missed out on a space and must drive to the event, Lambeth will allow Blue Badge holders to park in bays marked ‘Disabled’ or ‘Pay and Display’ for an unlimited time.

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.

 

Accessible Entrance

There are two General Admission entrances at Brockwell Bounce. The main Brixton Entrance has a dedicated Access Lane 1.2m wide. 

Charging Points

A charging point is available at the Welfare Tent. 

Accessible Toilets

Accessible toilets are located at 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. 

 

Lowered Counters

Lowered counters will be available at each main bar. 

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.

 

Bringing Food

You are welcome to bring a small picnic for personal use into the festival. However, alcohol, glass bottles and knives are prohibited.

Medication Storage

Seating

Personal chairs and stools are not permitted. All access customers are permitted to use the fast track access entrance lane, located at both public entrances.
