Huntendwarspop

Last month I travelled to Zutphen to meet Gert Rebergen. I was there to interview him about Huntendwarspop, an initiative to make a more inclusive, accessible music festival in The Netherlands. Gert works together with the small, familial festival Huntenpop in Ulft. Gert’s initiative acts as an interruption to this festival; by adding the word dwars to its name, his idea effectively cuts through the typical festival experience. After many years of attending music festivals, Gert grew increasingly frustrated by the lack of people with disabilities at these events. He decided to ask around his network, formed through a life’s work in the care industry. Why are people with disabilities so rarely attending music festivals?
