A ground-level, grass Accessible Viewing Area is provided alongside the viewing platform for customers who have health conditions or other disabilities and need a less crowded area and access to the accessible toilets. Please be aware that the ground-level viewing area will not be perfectly flat; the grass surface may be uneven and the area will be on a slight slope due to the topography of the site. There will not be an unrestricted sight line of the stage in this area, as there will be customers in front of the Ground-level Grass Accessible Viewing Area who are likely to be standing up.  All places in the Ground-level Grass Accessible Viewing Area must be pre-booked.
