The Marcus Amphitheater offers accessible seating for all events at all price levels. We will provide fair and equitable service and seating accommodations for patrons who request accessible seating.
Tickets for Accessible Seating
Tickets for accessible seating including, but not limited to, people who use wheelchairs, are blind or visually impaired and who are deaf or hard-of-hearing can purchase tickets by contacting the Summerfest Box Office at (414) 273-2600 (voice/TTY). On-line ordering of accessible seating is also available through Ticketmaster.
Please note, for each ticket for a wheelchair space purchased by a disabled individual or other person at his or her request, three additional tickets for seats in the same row and contiguous with the wheelchair space shall be made available for purchase (provided they are available at time of purchase). Summerfest will provide a folding chair as the companion seats in wheelchair accessible reserved seating areas.
Reserved wheelchair accessible seating is located on Platforms AA through L in sections 1 - 8. Patrons can purchase tickets for a specific platform.
For shows offering free General Admission seating, accessible seating is located on platform L. Free General Admission seating during Summerfest is available on a first-come, first-serve basis with wristbands. Wristbands are issued at Noon on the day of the performance at the Marcus Amphitheater.
For most concerts, volunteers are available to assist any persons who have disabilities, the elderly or those who need special assistance to their concert seats.
Regular Season Concerts Outside Summerfest
Reserved seating on our accessible seating platforms is available on Platforms AA through L, located in sections 1 through 8. General Admission seating is available on Platform L, located on the north end of the Amphitheater. There is no free General Admission seating for concerts held in the Marcus Amphitheater outside of Summerfest.
The Marcus Amphitheater was constructed prior to the promulgation of The Americans with Disabilities Act, signed into law on July 26, 1990, therefore the accessible seating locations for the bleachers and lawn seats, are platforms K and L, respectively. Neither the lawn nor the bleachers were designed to accommodate wheelchairs, and are not accessible. Please use the designated platforms K and L for those areas. For the safety of all patrons, wheelchairs are not permitted in the bleacher or lawn seats.
Please consult the Marcus Amphitheater Map to reference platform locations.
