Disabled access customers should first buy a Weekend or Day Ticket.
Please buy your festival ticket first via https://reading-festival.frontgatetickets.com.
You will then need to apply for access to disabled facilities and/or a free PA ticket via www.readingfestival.com/information. Only buy your ticket if you are applying for a Carer/PA Ticket. If you are not offered a free ticket for a PA but you still wish to bring someone and the event has sold out by the time we inform you, we can make one ticket available to buy.
The Access Requirements Form is live, please click here to complete the form.
Please Note: Only buy your ticket, do not buy a ticket for your PA as this will NOT be refunded if you are approved a PA ticket through the application. If you are not offered a free ticket for a PA but you still wish to bring someone, and the event has sold out by the time we inform you, we can make one ticket available to buy.
