Access Starts Online

Access Starts OnlineMusic charity Attitude is Everything has published its third State of Access Report, which provides a biennial snap-shot of UK live music accessibility and the barriers that disabled music fans are facing at gigs and festivals.

The report reveals that simple changes to online information provision could have a dramatic impact on the experiences of deaf and disabled customers. The report is available to download below.

In response to the findings, Attitude is Everything is calling on the UK live music industry to join their Access Starts Online campaign. Access information is the gateway for many deaf and disabled people when it comes to gauging whether or not an event might be for them. It is one of the key places on your website to demonstrate your commitment to putting on a truly inclusive and welcoming event.

To help venues and festivals achieve this, a set of guides and templates have been produced by Access is Everything, and are available to download below.
