 HEALTH, SAFETY, AND SECURITY 
 Safety & Security  

We want every fan to feel safe at the festival. Specific questions regarding safety, security, medical, and any others can be directed to info@thebeachlifefestival.com. If you have an immediate need while on-site seek out any festival staffer, police, fire, or security personnel.  For the safety of everyone entering the festival, all patrons may be subject to a full and complete search prior to entry. By  purchasing a ticket, you agree to submit to a full body pat-down and magnetometer screening before entry. If you would like to be screened by security personnel of your same gender, please let security personnel know prior to the search process. Screening of children will always take place with the consent of a parent or guardian. Persons that refuse to comply with the search policy may be refused entry into the event.
 

Health 

The BeachLife Festival team is working in close coordination with local and state authorities and will follow all required COVID-19 health & safety guidelines in place at the time of the festival to offer a safe festival experience.

 

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with our local health services provider, Beach Cities Health District, to ensure proper health protocols are met to give our guests the safest experience possible given the circumstances. Together with BCHD, we will be carefully crafting policies to ensure strict cleanliness and health protocols throughout the festival, including frequent wipe downs and surface cleaning in public areas.  Please follow our website here (www.beachlifefestival.com/faq) to keep abreast of the latest updates from us regarding our health plan. We will be updating this page frequently.

 ADA ACCESSIBILITY  

 

BeachLife Festival is a fully accessible live music festival, and we are dedicated to continually improving our efforts to ensure you have access to all the festival amenities. We welcome and encourage all feedback and suggestions from our patrons. The following explains the services provided this year. For any accessibility-related questions and/or needs please email info@thebeachlifefestival.com. We will do our best to help you have an awesome experience at BeachLife!
 

Accessible Viewing Areas: There will be accessible viewing areas made available to ADA patrons who may need to see above the crowd on the main stage and/or those who have mobility limitations. Visit any of the Information Booths near the festival entrances to gain access to these areas. Note that all viewing areas are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Plan to arrive early for popular acts.

Parking: BeachLife Festival does NOT have control of Redondo Beach-owned parking lots.  Inside of each city-owned parking lot adjacent to the festival grounds, there are a limited amount of ADA Parking spaces available. To park in this lot, please bring your valid disabled persons parking permit, placard, or plate. Please note that it is against the law to park in an accessible parking space without the required ADA credentials or to fraudulently use someone else’s in order to gain access to ADA parking spots. All placards will be checked for validity by the Redondo Beach Police Department upon arrival.
 

Pre-Registration for ADA:   Please consider pre-registering for an ADA wristband, and save time waiting in lines at the festival!  You will also help us better prepare to ensure proper seating and access to other ADA facilities. To pre-register, please email us at info@thebeachlifefestival.com, with the subject "ADA Pre-Registration" and attach a copy of your state-issued ADA placard or other paperwork with your name on it. We can then send your ADA wristband ahead of time, and it will be that much faster for you to enjoy the festival once you arrive. Please note: ADA deck seating is first-come, first-served and is not guaranteed.

Service Animals: Persons with disabilities and their service dogs or animals that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for those persons with disabilities are welcome at BeachLife Festival, as are those training service animals. Pets are not allowed and will be turned away. Due to large-scale animal service fraud, and for the protection of all festival patrons, service animals must be screened and registered at the Information Booth immediately upon entry to the site. Please contact us at INFO for protocol regarding service animals.
 

Please make sure to bring proof of certification & vaccination to the Information Booth to get properly registered. Any service animal whose task is to provide protection, emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship, is not considered a service animal and will not be allowed into the venue. All service animals must remain by the handler’s side at all times and must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.

Care of the service animal is the sole responsibility of the owner, including clean up, and any damage caused. Anyone bringing an animal will be responsible for and liable for any damage or injury caused by the animal.

  • Accessible Restrooms will be available throughout the venue and will be located at all restroom banks. Maps will be available in the Information Booth to show these locations.

  • ATM’s and Concessions are fully accessible and located throughout the venue. If assistance is required please confer with a festival staff member.

  • First Aid: We have several First Aid locations that are noted on the festival maps. Professional medical staff can help you with your medical needs at these locations.

In continually striving to make our festival more accessible for everyone, we encourage you to contact us at info@thebeachlifefestival.com for any of your accessibility-related needs. Additionally, if you have any questions about policies or our services please reach out to us.
