SACARE Proudly Sponsoring Sounds & Vibes Festival

SACARE is very proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the Silent Disco tent for the upcoming Sounds & Vibes music festival!

Sounds & Vibes is a fully accessible and inclusive music festival that is being held on the 1st of December 2018, at the Adelaide Show Grounds.

The event will be an accessible outdoor music festival with bands, DJs, a silent disco, a chill-out zone, elevated viewing platforms, Auslan interpreters, a guide; assistance dog-friendly area and much more!

This is the very first year that Sounds & Vibes is being held and aims to fill a gap in the market for those that miss out on other music festivals because of accessibility issues.

Karren Kelly is the driving force behind the festival. Karren has a 19 year old son with an intellectual disability and autism, who loves music. The festivals inception came from Karren wanting to create a safe space for her son to experience a festival atmosphere in. She came across a BBC news update about a disability friendly music festival that was held in the UK and thought “Why can’t we do that here?” So she created one!

We’re thrilled to be a part of such an exciting and innovative event. Our silent disco will be the perfect place to take a break from the main stage and have a boogie. A silent disco is just like a disco, but instead of using loud speakers to boom music across the dance floor, each dancer is given a pair of headphones... this is where the silent part comes into play. Silent discos can look a bit silly, but they are A LOT of fun!

Sounds & Vibes will be an all ages, outdoor, alcohol - free event celebrating as part of International Day for People with Disabilities. There will be many accessible features to aid people with disabilities to have a fantastic day.

All proceeds from the event will go to KYD-X, a youth and kids disability charity which holds expo’s to showcases services and products available for people under 25.
