Another attractive thing about the festival is its openness to everyone regardless age and other factors, and the reasonable ticket price. Wheelchair access is provided that goes along with tickets available at discounts. Children may have fun at children's stages with supervision so parents can enjoy themselves. You most likely won't meet any drunk rowdies at that festival. It already sounds like a sheer bundle of advantages, and yet that's not the whole list.
