About the Show
Ability Fest is a 1-day festival brought to you by the Dylan Alcott Foundation & Untitled Group that aims to use music as an inclusive platform to normalise disability.
Launched by 3 time Paralympic gold medalist & 7 time grand slam winner Dylan Alcott, Australia’s most inclusive music festival is held at the Coburg Velodrome, known better as Melbourne’s favorite concrete donut. Ability Fest was born by Alcott due to his love of music and his desire to use his foundation to change the lives of young Australians living with disability. Last year, Ability Fest did just that, raising just shy of $200,000 for Alcott’s foundation.
These funds are used to help young Australians with disabilities fulfil their potential through their grant program.
The Coburg Velodrome will be transformed into a completely accessible venue with the inclusion of elevated platforms, pathways, quiet zones, companion ticketing, ramps, stacks of friendly volunteers & of course accessible toilets are a priority of the Ability Fest team.
