About the Show

Ability Fest is the country’s first and only completely inclusive, fully accessible music festival, brought to you by the Dylan Alcott Foundation & Untitled Group and presented by Triple J

Conceptualised by three time Paralympic gold medalist & 14 time grand slam champion, Dylan Alcott, in conjunction with the masterminds behind musical festivals such as Beyond The Valley, Grapevine Gathering and Wildlands, Ability Fest aims to use music as an inclusive platform to normalise disability.

Ability Fest is being held in the lush surrounds of the Alexandra Gardens this year, opposite Flinders Street Station with the impressive Melbourne cityscape as a backdrop. Alexandra Gardens will be transformed into a completely accessible venue with the inclusion of elevated platforms, pathways, a dedicated sensory area, quiet zones, companion ticketing, ramps, stacks of friendly volunteers & of course; accessible toilets.

Taking a year off due to the pandemic, the event is back in 2021 with an added incentive to support the Entertainment and Music industry.Ability Fest 2021 is being led by Peking Duk and What So Not. Previous artists include Flight Facilities, Client Liaison, Tkay Maidza, The Presets and Hot Dub Time Machine.
