Attitude is Everything is an organisation campaigning to improve accessibility to concerts and festivals for disabled people. Its latest campaign kicks off today as a partnership with UK live industry bodies AIF, AFO and BAFA.
It’s called #FestivalsWithoutBarriers, and is geared towards driving change at more than 200 festivals and events in 2023.
The campaign is based around three calls to action. First, to make sure disabled people get good information about the accessibility of events when tickets go on sale.
Second, that the artist booking process for these events includes questions about access requirements. And third, practical changes to make festival workplaces and volunteering accessible to disabled people.
Attitude is Everything and its partners will work to support festivals in putting these principles into practice with a mixture of guides, training and events.
