A lot of music festivals are now doing free carer tickets (when you buy one) for those in receipt of DLA middle/higher levels.

I've applied for mine for Glastonbury this year and was successful in getting it last year.

That's just a few of the main ones in the UK doing it. Once again this year I can't see anything for Oxegen in Ireland, shocking.

Live Nation promoters seem to be doing it for all their festivals another two are Latitude and Global Gathering.

Hopefully this will have been of some use to someone.

This is great, it has been running since 2000 but good to see that someone has posted.
#3
Just don't dance too much or they will stop your money :-D

Should my first thought be 'what a great idea, this is caring and generous!'.. that's what I would like it to be too.... but no!! All I think is another loop hole for the benefit sponges out there to abuse, leaving less tickets for those happy to pay their way through life!!

P.S. I think this is a great thing for those people who truely deserve it!! Just a shame, so many don't and give the DLA a bad name!!

Rant over!! - Have some heat!
#5
This is HOT, did not know about this, you dont use a wheelchair by any chance do you as I would like to go to Glastonbury or V festival but not sure if it would be Fully accessible.
#6
Right.

Can anyone point me in the direction of the nearest disabled singles bar?

Hot!

Theres a bit on the Glastonbury page about Deaf festival goers. Can't see imagine many Deaf people at a music festival:thinking:
#8
^^^^^^Get yourself to Glastonbury and say that, you could go just for the spectacle and miss out on all the music and still be left with things to see and do.
A great place music lover or not, the music makes it extra special.

Hot deal, great post.
#9
Cold.

You can take someone on the bus "free" with you in Wales and Scotland too AFAIK if you have a disabled pass. Not as 'cool' as a music festival maybe but just as freezing a bargain.

That would be true, if it wasn't completely incorrect.

Only some disabled travel passes allow for a carer to travel with you.

My mother's pass has this facility, mine doesn't.

How is this not a good deal?
It's allowing people who otherwise would struggle to go the festivals to go.
It's not just a carer ticket they get, but at most festivals also access to specific disabled areas and facilities.

This is a fantastic deal.

Hot diggidy dog!!!!!!

Have some more heat :0)

what you look like ? :whistling:
#16
I think thats great, have some heat.......I also thought some people would take advantage but that happens anywhere there is any sort of deal....think about some of the people that take 50 or 100 of an item and sell it on Ebay, not a crime I know but not what I think of as...oops can I say this (playing the white man), dont' know a more apt phrase hope I don't get in trouble.
#17
Great deal for carers. These people work way below minimum wage anyway. Yes that's right, WORK! And going to this festival is WORK... for a carer.

Some of the comments here are so spiteful it's unbelievable. Ignorant bigots, get a life. You've obviously never had to look after someone with a terminal illness etc.

You should get in touch with the person in charge of the disabled side of the festival. They can tell you about the access on site and what it could be like if the weather turns bad.

The Glastonbury woman is brilliant at helping out and I've phoned her a few times over the years.
#20
Thanks op,links most useful have some heat!
#21
The criteria for DLA is not a specific disability but rather the care needs caused by the disability.
It has a very strict criteria and would not be easy to frauduently claim.
This deal is very hot as my husband(who has recieved DLA for 5 years )had no idea it was available. saying that having just discussed it ,its probably not feasable for us as my husband could not camp and its too far to travel for a day pass.
great for anyone who it helps though.

Hot deal for the genuine ones, who throughly deserve it. Voted hot! :thumbsup:

to be fair, none of you know the possible debilitating mental issues that people may have. you're only seeing a small part of someone's life. mental issues can be just as bad as physical disabilities. also, it's not as easy as you'd think to get the higher levels of dla. this is not really on topic, but i just get annoyed when people judge without knowing the situation.
#25
and i had no idea that this was available. it's a great idea for disabled people!

I so agree, I had never even heard of this before.
But as usual these post are slagged straight off as for scroungers and the like!!! I have a blue badge and its a Godsend,but I often feel ashamed of the fact that I cannot do what I once could.
We have just had a great night at The Royal Albert Hall listening to the Royal Marine Bands, but for it to be horribly spoilt by a London cabbie really moaning because our cab ride was only just over half a mile [but it was still £4 ] it was all uphill and I would not have made it!!
Please remember that some of us are still very sensitive to this form of criticism .
Oh! and my trip to the Hall, Christmas present from my youngest.

i tto recieve dla, for a variety of disabling issues, and also do feel the need to blow a gasket at the 4x4 disabled users etc but remember the variety of issues that complicate the requirements for dla are vast. you dont need to show a wheelchair to qualify and there are a lot of medical issues people have requiring them quick and easy access to facilities to give some quality they might not get otherwise. i have read all the replies to this linkand going by the response it shows clearly that we as a society are very good at judging others by our own standards. for the few dla useres and carers that can attend a full days festival with limited toilet, medical,travel facilities, i hope you guys have a blast.THINK FIRST JUDGE LATER!!

This thread is a deal thread for those members who are in receipt of DLA - its not a misc discussion about whether those members are entitled to their benefits or a rant about how unfair it is some people get those benefits. Some of the deleted comments have been frankly unpleasant - don't repost them please.
#29
I didn't know that this existed so have some H & R ..... I hope that some people will take advantage of it. These are definitely worthy posts & keep them coming!!!

Yup, so many people with disabilities are missing out as it's not very well publicised.
