Dan Grover Memorial Ticket Grant Program Application
Accessible Festivals is a non-profit organization dedicated to making music and recreation accessible to all abilities. The program also aims to keep the legacy of Dan Grover alive, who turned his passion of music into a profession by becoming one of the first Accessibility Consultants in the live music industry. 

Our ticket gifting program grants free access to recreational experiences like concerts, festivals, and conventions for individuals with disabilities and their loved ones. We look to grant these tickets to individuals that particularly need something to look forward to and lack the resources to purchase a ticket. Preference is given to individuals that have recently been injured or diagnosed with a disease, ailment, or disorder that results in a disability.

Please fill out the application below to be considered for a Ticket Grant!  For every event listed, we’ll be granting complimentary  admission for an individual with a disability and one companion (two total tickets). Applicants will be selected at least three weeks before the first day of the festival so make to apply early.


Dan Grover was born on December 6, 1962, in rural New Jersey. At an early age, he was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic condition that deteriorates muscular strength over time, and began using a wheelchair for mobility at the age of 21. The first show Dan attended was Yes in Philadelphia in 1979 where he was piggy backed into the venue due to a lack of accessibility at the time. Throughout the next forty years Dan attended over 400 shows, including over 50 Grateful Dead concerts. With a wheelchair, Dan had to find creative ways to see the show. It was this lived experience, and his love for the music, that turned him into one of the first Accessibility Consultants in the live music industry. It was also the origin of his company See the Show.

Dan was responsible for implementing and improving ADA operations at some of the nation’s largest music festivals including Electric Forest, Outside Lands, Life is Beautiful, and many more. Over the years, he helped ensure thousands of disabled guests were able to see the show safely and comfortably and was a fierce advocate for greater inclusion and accessibility for all. The result of his work was thousands of guests with disabilities having unforgettable experiences that would not otherwise have happened. He cared about nothing more than the people around him and doing whatever he could to put a smile on someone else’s face.

Sadly, Dan passed away on July 27, 2022. Everyone who knew Dan will remember his passion for helping people with disabilities and his huge smile. This program is intended to keep Dan’s legacy alive and honor him by sharing his passion for music and continuing to help other people with disabilities see the show.
