Music charity Attitude Is Everything has announced that it is expanding its Outstanding Attitude Awards, which recognise music venues, festivals and other live music operators that best serve deaf and disabled audience members.

The awards programme will have its own ceremony for the first time, due to take place next March, with the number of awards handed out increased to ten.

“Having trialled the concept in 2016, I am delighted Attitude Is Everything can now present a standalone event that celebrates the best in UK live music access innovation”, says AIE CEO Suzanne Bull. “From DIY events to companies at the cutting edge of ticketing technology, we want to bring the live music world together to shine a light on all of the ways live music can be made more inclusive for deaf and disabled music fans”.

She continues: “By recognising what is possible at every level, we will demonstrate how the UK is a global leader when it comes to live music accessibility, and hope to encourage the industry to take further positive action. If you are working to break down barriers and include deaf and disabled music fans, this is your chance to shout about it!”

Indeed it is, because nominations for this year’s awards are now open. You have until 21 Dec to put forward artists, promoters, venues, ticketing companies and others who have gone above and beyond to improve accessibility.

You can apply for the awards, or nominate others, here. The awards ceremony is set to take place at Islington Assembly Hall on 12 Mar.
