Just Like Heaven welcomes all people 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.
There will be an Accessibility Services Hub conveniently located inside the festival grounds to support and address the needs of all attendees with accessibility needs. This location will be labeled on the guest facing map when released. There is no ADA pre-registration before the event - this is all done onsite at the event.
At the Accessibility Services Hub, you can:
Disabled attendees wishing to utilize some of the accessibility services at Just Like Heaven will be required to wear an ADA Wristband. This wristband is acquired onsite at our Accessibility Services location. There is not an “ADA ticket” that needs to be purchased in order to utilize accessibility services at Just Like Heaven.
If a disabled attendee wants to switch their companion, a new ADA Companion Wristband can be exchanged by bringing the old companion wristband back to the Accessibility Services Hub to be reissued.
We encourage patrons with mobility disabilities to utilize personal forms of transportation, including wheelchairs and scooters. Crutches, walkers and canes are also permitted. Please note that we will not be renting assisted mobility devices onsite.
The Venue is navigable for people with mobility disabilities. Be advised that the venue is held on a golf course, with primarily grassy terrain with pathways made of gravel. Please note that some sections of the grassy terrain do have a slight incline. Guests will need to traverse throughout the festival grounds between stages independently or with the assistance of a companion as the festival does not provide transportation between stages. If you need assistance finding your most accessible route around the event, please visit us at the Accessibility Services Hub. Be aware that it may be up to a quarter mile traverse to get between parking and the furthest stage in direct sunlight, with patches of shaded trees through the venue.
If you need to recharge your motorized wheelchair or other medical equipment, you may do so at the Accessibility Services Hub.
A designated ADA Parking lot (Lot F) will be available for attendees with a valid Disabled Person Parking placard, permit or license plate, as well as the applicable proof that it belongs to them. ADA Parking in this lot requires an event General parking pass and is available on a first come, first serve basis. ADA parking will also be available in Preferred & Clubhouse parking lots for guests with those applicable parking passes.
Please visit the ‘Getting Here’ page for directions to each parking lot.
To utilize ADA Parking, you must have:
It is against the law to park in an accessible parking space without the required credentials, or to fraudulently use credentials in order to gain access to Accessible Parking.
Accessible shuttles are available for guests with disabilities traveling from Parsons Parking Lot to the venue. Please proceed to the shuttle stop location and speak with an shuttle representative for assistance with requesting one of these shuttles. More information can be found HERE.
Guests with disabilities can be dropped off by friends and family or a rideshare in the ADA Loading and Unloading zone located in Lot H. Please follow directional signage and traffic attendants to this zone.
There will be an ADA entry lane located at the main entrance, which will be labeled with signage. Disabled guests may use this lane to safely enter the venue. After using the ADA entry, please visit the Accessibility Services booth immediately to inquire of further accessible services provided at the event.
There will be accessible viewing areas made available to ADA patrons and their one (1) companion at designated stages. For information on how to gain access to these areas, please visit us at the Accessibility Services Hub.

Goldenvoice will consider any request by an attendee with a disability for reasonable modification of its policies, practices or procedures or for auxiliary aids and services that will permit the attendee equal enjoyment of the goods and services offered at the Festival. We encourage you to make any such request as far in advance as possible to enhance our ability to evaluate and fulfill the request.
In continually trying to make our festival more accessible, we encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any of your accessibility-related needs. Additionally, if you have any questions about ADA policies or our services, please reach out to us.
