About Us

Attitude is Everything supports the music industry to make live music events more accessible. Having begun as a pilot project in 2000, we are now a fully independent charity and part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio of Organisations. We encourage events producers to go beyond legal obligations set out in The Equality Act and implement Best Practice, providing a fair and equal service to their Deaf and disabled customers.

“I started to work in partnership with Attitude is Everything because they gave me practical solutions to real challenges.” 

Melvin Benn, Festival Republic.

We challenged the status quo with two innovative creations. The Attitude is Everything Charter of Best Practice encourages live venue promoters to publicly show their commitment to improving access. Club Attitude is held in fully accessible venues and features a mix of live performers (both disabled and non-disabled), attracting guest slots from artists including Mystery Jets, Slow Club, Foals and Art Brut and DJ sets from Ghostpoet, Alan McGee, DJ Void and Alexa Chung.

Our many successes to date include working with Festival Republic on all of their UK Festivals, supporting Academy Music Group and National Arena Association venues to sign to our Charter, and using the Charter of Best Practice as an event standard for all festivals taking place on Victoria Park. Our Access Toolkit: Making Outdoor Arts Events Accessible to All was awarded the London 2012 Inspire Mark.
