Normalising disability by encouraging everyone to come together and celebrate music.

Ability Fest is coming to Melbourne for a big party in the Coburg Velodrome. Hosted by the Dylan Alcott Foundation, the festival will raise funds to help people living with disabilities achieve their goals.

Alcott himself is a Paralympian and all-around music expert, who’s organised a jam-packed bill. The lineup includes Kingswood, Tkay Maidza, Boo Seeka, Japanese Wallpaper, Ninajirachi, Big Words, Owl Eyes and more. Best of all, every artist is donating their time and talent to support the cause.

The event will see Auslan interpreters on most of the stages, as well as special platforms for festival-goers in wheelchairs.

100 per cent of proceeds will be donated to help Australians in need via the Dylan Alcott Foundation. Tickets are available here.
