The shortlists have been announced for the recently expanded Outstanding Attitude Awards, which are being presented by music charity Attitude Is Everything to live music businesses which have excelled in making their events accessible to disabled audiences. The overall winners will be announced at an event in London on 12 Mar.

Commenting on the shortlists, Attitude Is Everything boss Suzanne Bull said: “There can’t be many award shows that cover nominations from live music’s biggest and most recognised global brands next to those from outdoor toilet specialists and tiny local venues. That’s what makes the Outstanding Attitude Awards so special”.

“It highlights how, regardless of size, scale and budget, everyone has the capacity to tear down barriers and make music more inclusive”, she added. “The only limit is our imagination, and that’s what we’ll be celebrating on 12 Mar”.
