Concert Goers Criticize Bluesfest’s Accessibility Policy

Amy Gibson, AKA DJ Amy Volume, tried to see a show at Bluesfest last week. She has rheumatoid arthritis and because of the construction had to walk a long distance with her husband to get to the gate because the Uber cab could not get close. A festival worker saw she was limping and suggested they go to the accessibility zone. When they got there she was asked for proof of her disability even though that is not required in the festivals accessibility policy.
