Stagecoach is an accessible event, and we are dedicated to continually improving our efforts to ensure you have access to all the event amenities. We welcome and encourage all feedback and suggestions from our patrons. The following explains the services provided this year. Please read this informational guide thoroughly before sending an inquiry email. For any accessibility-related questions not answered in the guide, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to assist you and address your accessibility needs.
Accessible camping locations are available for those with accessibility needs. Campsites include close access to paths, entrances, exits, shuttles, accessible restrooms, and accessible showers.
Accessible camping spots are available on a first come, first serve basis. Registering helps us prepare for your group and plan our accessible camping area. To reserve an ADA camping spot, you must purchase your desired camping pass first, then fill out the ADA Camping Registration Form.
Limited spots may be available to unregistered guests onsite but are not guaranteed. You will need a verified handicap placard or license plate to enter the accessible camping area. The person to whom the placard or plate is issued must be present in the vehicle, as a driver or passenger. As part of gaining access to accessible camping, identification will be checked to ensure legitimate use.
Please note that no power will be provided in car camping or RV dry camping.
The venue is navigable for people with mobility disabilities. The event is held on primarily grassy terrain. Please be aware that it is a large, spacious venue. The distance from the main entrance to our ADA viewing area at the main stage is approximately a quarter of a mile. There are accessible routes connected throughout the venue including parking, entrances, stages, ADA viewing areas, vendors, and all other activity areas. We encourage all guests with mobility disabilities to utilize personal forms of transportation, including wheelchairs and scooters. Crutches, walkers and canes are permitted as well to be brought in to the event. If you need to recharge your motorized mobility device, you may do so at any of the the Accessibility Services Hubs. Patrons should bring all cords and accessories needed to charge their devices. Chargers must use a 110-volt, 20 amp circuit.
We will not be providing wheelchair or scooter rentals.
A separate ADA Parking (Lot 14C) will be available for attendees with valid Disabled Person Parking placard, permit or license plate, as well as the applicable proof that it belongs to them. ADA Parking is free and does not require a parking pass.
ADA Parking Directions
From the I-10 Freeway (or Highway 111):
To utilize ADA Parking, you must have:
It is against the law to park in an accessible parking space without the required credentials or to fraudulently use credentials in order to gain access to Accessible Parking.
Accessible shuttles are available for guests with disabilities traveling from designated hotels to the venue. ADA guests are strongly encouraged to reach out to Valley Music Travel by phone or email to request an accessible shuttle in advance.
Concierge Line: (267) 223-6751
If requesting in advance is not possible, guests with disabilities can request an accessible shuttle by speaking to the shuttle representative present at their hotel. Upon arrival at the Empire Polo Grounds, ADA guests who require transportation assistance to the main entrance can wait for a ride at the ADA Shuttle Stop Tent located in the northwest corner of the lobby of the Hotel Shuttles lot.
Guests with disabilities may be dropped off by friends and family and load/unload in our ADA Loading & Unloading Zone in Lot 13A. This lot is located at the corner of Ave 52 & Madison St - You will want to enter the lot from Madison St.
There will be an ADA entry lane at each entrance of the festival grounds, including:
Disabled guests may use these lanes to safely enter the venue. We recommend that guests register at our exterior and camping Accessibility Services Hubs before heading to the ADA entry lane, as an ADA wristband credential ensures a smoother access for guests needing to use this entry for the event.
Please Note: You must stop here to get your ADA wristband credential. There is no ADA pre-registration before the event (other than for an ADA camping spot) - this is all done onsite at the event.
There will be 3 Accessibility Services Hubs at the event, located: Inside the venue (interior), outside of the camping entrance in Lot 8 (camping), and at ADA Parking (exterior). All of these locations will be labeled on the festival map when it is released.
At the Accessibility Services Hub you can:
There will be accessible viewing areas made available to ADA patrons who may need to see above the crowd at designated stages. To gain access to these areas, please visit us at the Accessibility Services Hub.
Accessible Viewing Area Policies
Service animals are permitted throughout the venue. However, this does not include emotional support animals, therapy animals, or companion animals. Any animal whose task is to provide protection, emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship is not considered a service animal and will not be allowed into the venue. Only service animals that have been individually trained and are under the proper care of their owners will be allowed within the premises.
The following guidelines must be followed:
We ask that you do not leave your animal in your car while you're inside the event, as vehicles without air conditioning on may become too hot and unsafe for any animal. We also ask that you do not leave your animal in your RV UNLESS there is air conditioning consistently on for them.
We accept requests for any of the following services:
