In order to provide the best possible experience, we ask that everyone who wishes to use the Access facilities at Download complete and submit an Access Requirements Form prior to arriving on-site.
- Returning 2020 Customers: If you applied for access at Download 2020, and your application was accepted, your details will automatically be rolled over for Download 2022 (if you still wish to attend). We will contact you with further information closer to the event.
Access REQUIREMENTS FORM
Our 2022 Access Requirements Form is: Not Currently Live
Check back here nearer the event, or sign up to the Access Mailing List to receive a notification when our form goes live. Notifications are usually sent out in the January prior to the event.
When applying for access at Download we ask that you provide one of the following forms of documentation which will act as evidence of your requirements. Without this documentation we will be unable to grant you access, or provide complimentary PA Tickets.
Please note: If you are on the Festival Republic access database (i.e. have previously applied and had an application approved within the last three years) you will not need to re-supply documentation.
Accepted forms of documentation are
- DLA (Care and / or mobility)
- PIP (Personal Independence Payment)
- A Medical professionals letter (To be reviewed case by case)
- Armed Forces Independence Payment
- War Disablement Pension
- D/deaf or blind registration
- The Nimbus Access Card
- Blue Badge (Permitted for parking requests only)
If you do not have one of the forms of documentation listed above, please contact us and we’ll be able to advise further. Alternatively, if you do have required documentation but are unable to include it in your application, please state you will forward it to us (by email, fax or post) in the ‘Additional Notes’ box on the form.
All submitted documentation is kept strictly confidential and securely destroyed after processing.
Whilst submitting your application form, you can choose to join Festival Republic’s Access Database. By doing so, once accepted a first time, you will not need to resubmit documentation for a further three years and will automatically be pre-approved for access at our festivals.
Please note: Once approved we will only retain your name and email address. We will never use your information for any other purposes (unless specifically stated) or share this with any third parties.
We aim to process all applications within 4 weeks of customers submitting an Access Requirements Form; however, due to demand, this is not always possible.
Once your application has been approved we will send a confirmation email, detailing the facilities you have requested access to, and confirming your PA Ticket (if applicable).
Nearer the event successful applicants will also be sent an email containing a downloadable Access Guide.
