Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair access
Citadel is on a green-field site with some tarmac paths. While there are some sheltered areas (marquees) it is mainly an open-air event. Weather and ground conditions may be variable and in times of extreme weather, mobility on the site may become very difficult. We ask you to consider this before purchasing a ticket.
In addition, our transportation partner Uber has a wheelchair accessible and mobility options in the app.
