Terrain

Firefly Music Festival takes place on natural terrain. There are gravel roads throughout much of the festival grounds and grass areas around the stages. The Pathway is on mulch and may be difficult for some. If so, please check in at the Access Center for shuttle access to assist you.

If it rains, the festival area may become muddy and difficult to get around. Please be prepared for rain and/or other circumstances that may change the nature of the terrain. Off-road wheelchair tires and pneumatic tire repair kits are recommended. In the case of inclement weather, certain parts of the festival may be inaccessible for wheelchairs or motorized vehicles.

The festival grounds are sprawling. Ample travel time is necessary to access the entire event.

Electric Mobility Devices: Only powered wheelchairs and three-wheeled or four-wheeled scooters are permitted. Absolutely no personal golf carts are allowed.

We do not provide wheelchair or scooter rentals. You are welcome to bring your own wheelchair, motorized or otherwise. If you need to recharge your motorized wheelchair, you may do so at the Access Center.

Patrons should bring all cords and accessories needed to charge their devices. Chargers must use a 110-volt, 20 amp circuit.

Please be aware that no vehicles, including the ADA shuttles, will be allowed to cross the bridge between Day Parking and the venue 1 hr before gates close until 1 hr after gates close. During this time, there will be an accessible bus that takes a detour route; however it may take up to an hour for the bus to complete the route and return to the festival pick up point. Please make sure to schedule your time to account for delays. If you have additional questions, please reach out to accessibility@fireflyfestival.com.
