2022 Accessibility (ADA)

Coachella welcomes attendees with disabilities. We are dedicated to continually improving our efforts to ensure attendees have access to all festival goods and services, regardless of ability.


It is not acceptable to fake or exaggerate a disability to gain access to disability accommodations. Our ADA department has finite resources and needs to focus these resources on helping those who legitimately require assistance.

ADA Wristband

Disabled attendees wishing to utilize some of the accessibility services at Coachella will be required to wear an ADA Wristband. This wristband is acquired onsite at one of our Accessibility Services locations. There is not an “ADA ticket” that needed to be purchased in order to utilize accessibility services at Coachella.  

  • ADA Wristbands are good for the entire Coachella weekend.
  • DO NOT remove your wristband for the duration of the festival.
  • One (1) ADA Companion Wristband will be issued per disabled patron.
    • Additional Wristbands may be issued for families with young children.
  • If a disabled attendee wants to switch his/her companion, a new ADA Companion Wristband can be exchanged for the old wristband at an Accessibility Services location. 

Access Center

Accessibility Services locations are conveniently located throughout the festival to support and address the needs of all attendees with accessibility needs.

  • Get your ADA wristband credential.
  • Have your ADA questions answered.
  • Learn about all accessibility services.

Thursday 9am-10pm (Camping only)

We encourage patrons with mobility disabilities to utilize personal forms of transportation, including wheelchairs and scooters. Please note that we will not be renting mobility devices onsite.


  • The Venue is navigable for people with mobility disabilities. There are no steps or steep slopes inside the venue. Please be advised that the venue’s terrain is grass. All VIP areas are accessible. 


If you need to recharge your motorized wheelchair or other medical equipment, you may do so at an Accessibility Services location.

  • Bring all cords and accessories needed to charge your devices.
  • Chargers must use a 110-volt, 20 amp circuit.
  • We will not be providing wheelchair or scooter rentals.

Hotel Shuttles
