No. The Access wristband is only needed to access the accessible stage viewing platform(s) and not required for any other ADA services provided by the festival. 

We will have Accessibility staff in the campgrounds, ADA parking, and the Access Center inside the festival grounds. All Access staff will be able to give you a wristband to access the seated ADA viewing platforms that are only located in the GA sections. Note viewing platforms are first come first serve and do tend to fill up for popular acts, plan accordingly. 

Deaf/Hard of Hearing patrons can request an access wristband at the Access Center. This wristband is to show Festival staff that the patron plus ONE companion is eligible to enter the accessible viewing area with ASL Interpreters. The access wristband is non-transferrable.

The campgrounds and festival grounds are a combination of concrete, asphalt and natural terrain. We have done our best to accommodate for mud, branches, roots and dramatic inclines but they do still exist. Please be safe, we will have staff on hand at the Access Center to direct you to the best route to stages, platforms, and activations.
The Festival does not provide personal care or push services of any kind or wheelchairs for rent or loan. Wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, and three or four-wheeled scooters are allowed only for use by patrons with mobility disabilities. For safety reasons, requests to use any other power-driven mobility devices will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Powered wheelchairs may also be charged 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.

Bourbon & Beyond is a rain or shine event, however, there are several instances in which we would pause, evacuate or cancel the show due to inclement weather, including (but not limited to): severe thunderstorms, lightning in our festival radius, excessive wind, hail, flooding, or as directed by local emergency personnel.  
In the event of an evacuation due to weather, fans who drove to the event will need to seek shelter in their vehicles or return to the campgrounds (if possible) to wait out the delay. Fans that arrive via Rideshare or do not have access to a vehicle for shelter may be instructed to shelter in place in the Kentucky Expo Center’s South Wing C.  Fans will be informed of any emergency situation via audio and video announcements from the stages, the B&B mobile app push notifications and social media.  We recommend fans download the B&B mobile app and follow our socials to stay up-to-date with festival communication.  We also encourage fans to sign up for LENSAlert messages by texting “BOURBON” to 67283.
In the event of an evacuation, staff will provide direction to all fans and the Access Center staff will work directly with fans with disabilities to get to shelter safely. More information on evacuation procedures will be available on our Health & Safety Page, the festival map and at the Access Center.
