‘LIVE MUSIC IS FOR EVERYONE’
We are committed to making Junction 1, Glasgow an enjoyable and inclusive experience for everyone.
We are a brand-new venue and have been working closely with the charity ‘Attitude is Everything’, who improve Deaf and disabled people's access to live music by working in partnership with audience artists and the music industry to implement a Charter of Best Practice in the UK.
For use of the access facilities, we ask that you pre-register with us in advance of the event. This can be done by completing our Access Application Form.
Please note, the following facilities are for customers with permanent/long term access requirements and are not for any temporary impairments such as broken bones, healing wounds or pregnant women. This is an all-standing event. Chairs are not allowed into the site.
Our Junction 1 accessible guide with event-specific information will be sent out (via email) prior to the event to all confirmed applicants including arrival info, access maps, distances, access facilities and more. We recommend saving and printing a copy of the Access Guide for your own reference (once available). No hard copies will be available on-site.

Junction 1’s outdoor event site underfoot is uneven and consists of a combination of gravel, and partial tarmac. As we all know, the Scottish weather dances to its own tune and we can often enjoy four seasons in one day, so as we prepare for all conditions, we do ask that you do too. Please consider the ground conditions when applying for what access you might require. We ask our guests to prepare for all weather and ground conditions as this could make some areas of the site inaccessible.

The Accessible platform is seated only and uncovered. We do ask that you dress appropriately for the Scottish weather as umbrella’s are prohibited at the event to allow for optimum viewing for all platform guests.
