You got the tickets to the gig of the year, youve been dreaming of getting right up front, with the best view of the band, right in there in the midst of the sweat and tears. That would be the best gig ever. But for thousands of disabled young music fans getting into the mosh pit will never be a reality and for many they can't get into the gigs at all.

Radio One investigates the reality for music fans and performers how easy it is to follow your passion for your music when you are disabled. Artists who have fought hard to get access to the stage and the DJ box and others like Guy Garvey from Elbow and The Lost Prophets reveal why it's so important to them to secure access for all.
