Attitude Is Everything

Attitude Is Everything has announced the Outstanding Attitude Awards, recognising music venues and festivals that best serve deaf and disabled music fans.

“Attitude Is Everything’s Charter Of Best Practice is designed to promote innovation and dismantle barriers to accessing live music”, explains Suzanne Bull, CEO of the accessibility charity. “Venues and festivals that join at our bronze stage are encouraged to keep moving forward until they reach silver or gold, and as a result of this process we are seeing the most forward-thinking event producers become ever more creative and resourceful in how they encourage deaf and disabled fans to attend their shows”.

She continues: “The Outstanding Attitude Awards were conceived with these businesses in mind. We want to shine a light on the most creative, the most interesting and most envelope-pushing examples of access provision – and look forward to celebrating the best of the best in just over two month’s time”.

The winners will be announced on 21 Nov, chosen from more than 120 venues and festivals signed up to the charity’s Charter Of Best Practice by a panel of industry professionals.
