Melbourne‘s Coburg Velodrome is hosting a huge party next month with the first-ever Ability Fest exploding onto the autumn festival scene this year.
Ya boy Dylan Alcott has rallied together all his musically-inclined mates to lend their talents for a one-day blockbuster on Saturday April 7 – to launch the Dylan Alcott Foundation – and he’s making it as inclusive and accessible as possible.
The venue itself will be fully accessible, as well as featuring plenty of viewing platforms for punters in wheelchairs, and AUSLAN translators on the main stages for those with hearing difficulties.
100% of the proceeds raised from ticket sales will be going to the Dylan Alcott Foundation, which is helping to champion and improve the self-esteem of young Aussies with disabilities by breaking down barriers, getting them into sport, and realising their full potential through mentorships, scholarships, and grants.
So who’s on the line-up, you ask? Well, you’re gunna want to get tickets to this big jam, because it’s bloody STACKED, lemme tell you. Without further ado, here’s who you can catch at Ability Fest 2018:
Flight Facilities x Client Liaison (B2B DJ SET)
Harvey Sutherland (DJ SET)
Made in Paris
Yeah that’s bloody right, they’re dropping a god-damned B2B with Client Liaison and Flight Facilities, smashing out an infamous FF ‘Decades’ set. Hoo BOY that’s gunna be a whole bloody time. Check the line-up video below and get excited, people.
