Festival Spirit

Festival Spirit is a charity providing the full festival experience to young people who would not normally be able to enjoy one due to life-limiting illness or disability, our VIPs.

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    Festival Spirit is a charity providing the full music festival experience to young people who would not normally be able to enjoy one due to life-limiting illness or disability, our VIPs.

    We are passionate about helping disabled and life-limited people who never thought they could attend a festival to enjoy the experience safe in the knowledge that they will have the facilities, support and back up necessary for their condition.

    Carers are hand-picked to match the needs of our attendees (our VIP's) needs from straightforward feeding and showering to more complex routines.

    Our accommodation on site is in an amazing specially adapted tent with hard flooring and close to disabled facilities such as showers and toilets.

    Able-bodied "buddies" are matched up to VIP's to help them get around the festival site and to get the most out of the event, to see the music and bands they want to see and to attend all the other exciting activities on offer.

  • Aims

    Festival Spirit aims to:

    • To relieve the needs of young people with disabilities and/or life-limiting illness through the provision of music festival activities provided to enable them to participate more widely in society
