Accessibility

We want Rockstar Energy presents TRNSMT Festival to be an event that is accessible for all.

We have a dedicated Access Team working to constantly improve the experience for accessible customers so, we welcome and encourage feedback from our attendees on our accessible facilities.

We are proud to have been awarded the Gold level of Attitude is Everything’s Charter of Best Practice. Attitude is Everything is a charity set up to help improve D/deaf and disabled people’s access to live music, and to support the music industry in making live music events more accessible. You can find out more about them here.

Accessible facilities are not for the use of people with temporary impairments or circumstances such as broken bones, healing wounds or pregnancy. Customers concerned with any of these points can contact the Access Team.

We understand that hidden disabilities are not immediately apparent. If you would like support or advice inside the event our Accessible Manager will be the main point of contact and is based at the Accessible Platform. You can also contact us in advance with your questions via access@TRNSMTfest.com.

Please remember to check general event information in addition to the accessible information provided on this page.

This year we are excited to be partnering with Nimbus Disability and The Access Card, one of the largest disability accreditation organisations who are run by and for disabled people and recognised as a leader in accessibility.

The Site

Glasgow Green is an outdoor, public park in Glasgow’s city centre. The ground in the arena consists of a combination of gravel, grass, and limited hard-standing paths, tarmac pathways and temporary trackway. Poor weather conditions can have a detrimental effect on the terrain making some areas inaccessible to wheelchair users or customers with mobility issues.

Route from Accessible Parking – There is a hard-standing path through a lightly wooded area of the park from the parking area to the accessible entrance. This is mostly level apart from the kerb to the pavement.

Route from City Centre OR Bridgeton Station – This route is made up of pavements and roads through city streets. There are pedestrian crossings with dropped kerbs throughout this route.
