Attitude is Everything announces Outstanding Attitude Awards 2019

Attitude is Everything has today revealed initial details of the Outstanding Attitude Awards, which will take place at Islington Assembly Hall, March 12 – the music charity has issued an industry-wide call for nominations.

Celebrating innovation and best practice in access to live music and referencing some of the charity’s key campaigns, the awards recognises businesses and organisations that have positively impacted the experiences of Deaf and disabled music audiences.

Initially launched in 2016, this year will be the first time the awards have had their own dedicated ceremony.

Suzanne Bull MBE, CEO of Attitude is Everything, said: “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. 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.

“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!”

Margot James, minister for the creative industries, added: “Everyone should be able to access and enjoy our fantastic live music scene and inclusivity should be at the forefront of promoters, event organisers and music venues’ plans. Attitude is Everything’s Outstanding Attitude Awards is a fantastic initiative which complements DCMS’s commitment that arts and culture should be accessible for all.”

Live music businesses are being encouraged to nominate themselves here.
