We were near the disability area in the Mojo during Monday arvo and for Dylan and I must say Bluesfest organisers need to do something about the size of the area and the access they have provided for such a big event. It was pathetic!

Access was through mud and slush onto a 'duckboard' then up the ramp to a space chockers with wheelchairs with people wedged in severely uncomfortably like sardines.It was shameful to witness in 2011 that this is still happening. Access out to the nearest disabled toilet was also through bog and slush that could have been easily been fixed. The people in that area must have been going through hell!

Only positive part of watching the sardine squashing was this fantastic long curly haired, cheery, personable 'chair controller' who manoeuvred,cajoled and coaxed people into places and then continually rearranged with great humour and compassion. He deserves a medal as do the people enduring the sardine shuffle.
