Accessibility

In collaboration with Inter, Graspop Metal Meeting goes the extra mile to make the event as accessible as possible for people with a disability. The festival arena, the Inter camping and the car park all offer adapted infrastructure and/or assistance.

Would you like to make use of our disabled facilities?  Buy your GMM tickets and then contact Inter at the earliest opportunity (and by 1 June 2020 at the latest). Remember to include proof of disability. As soon as your application has been processed Inter will send you a confirmation email with further instructions.

AT THE CAR PARK

The car park nearest the main entrance includes a special disabled section. Access to this section must be requested via the online application form. The number of parking spaces is limited so be sure to submit your application with Inter on time. At the car park, Inter volunteers will be on hand to assist you and, if necessary, escort you to the main festival entrance.

AT THE FESTIVAL ARENA

There is a separate disabled booth at the main festival entrance where people with a disability can exchange their festival ticket for a wristband. In addition, they can access the festival arena via a separate passage in the company of 1 carer.

During the festival Inter staff are on hand to provide assistance where necessary. They are easily recognised by their Inter vests and you will find them at the main entrance, on the raised platforms and in the Inter zone at camping Boneyard. More specifically, Inter staff will help you set up your tent at the Inter camping, they can assist you with bathroom visits and meals or help you get around the grounds... Please do not hesitate to call on the Inter staff when you are in need of assistance.

Raised platforms in front of the Main Stages and in the Marquee are available for wheelchair users and festival goers with limited mobility. They can be accompanied by one carer and there are chairs on the platform. The Inter volunteers and members of the GMM Crew will make sure the platforms are not too crowded.

Guide and assistance dogs are also allowed in the festival arena.

The use of folding chairss higher than 55 cm in folded condition must be requested specifically on the Inter application form; no application is required for folding chairs up to 55 cm.

All sanitary facilities include a disabled toilet.

AT CAMPING BONEYARD

At camping Boneyard, an Inter camping area near the entrance is reserved for people with a disability. This dedicated zone includes accessible showers, wash basins and toilets. The maintenance tent is equipped with a mobile hoist and a nursing bed and there is mains power. Wheelchair users can also charge their ride there overnight. Carers are also welcome to spend the night here (max. 4 persons, max. 3 small tents).

Please note that the number of places is limited here as well so take care to submit your application form on time. Once the camping is full, it’s full. Access to camping Boneyard requires a valid festival wristband.

AT CAMPING SKULLOTEL

Camping Skullotel is a campsite at a mere 1.5 km walk from the festival arena. Camping Skullotel has an accessible toilet and shower for the disabled. There are no shuttles to and from festival arena. Please note that the signposted shortcut to the festival arena is not entirely asphalted. No Inter staff is on hand at Skullotel to provide assistance.

AT CAMPING METAL TOWN

Metal Town is within walking distance of the festival arena. Festival goers with limited mobility can use the Inter shuttle if necessary. Attention: this shuttle only runs a few times per day and passengers are dropped off as close to the main festival entrance as possible. If you’re staying in Metal Town and you wish to make use of the shuttle then you can indicate this on the online application form. Following approval you will receive further details on shuttle times and other arrangements.

The sanitary facilities at Metal Town include an accessible shower and toilet. The public areas of the campsite are accessible but there are no Inter staff on site.

SPECIAL DIET & MEDICATION

Visitors who are on a special diet for health reasons can bring their own food (note: no hard containers!) and/or medication (in the original packaging!). There is NO need to list this on the application form but you do need a valid prescription. This way our security staff will know why you brought medication and/or syringes and any awkward discussions can be avoided. Medication requiring cold storage can be handed in at the Red Cross stations.
