Main Stage

This central London event has presented some of the biggest acts around and this year’s festival maintains the usual high standards. Held in Hyde Park, the multi-day event promises the ‘festival vibe’ … but without the camping. Alongside standard tickets, the event provides a number of VIP options.

Disabled customers are welcome at Hard Rock Calling, but as it is a greenfield site there are sections of the arena that have uneven ground meaning that sometimes, access is difficult. Stewards however, will be around to assist.
Live Nation provides facilities in the arena to accommodate disabled customer's needs. Not all disabled customer's need use of these facilities but the organisers will provide access to whatever is needed and/or a free carer/PA ticket where required to ensure your stay is comfortable, and most of all, enjoyable.
