Live music is for everyone, so we believe in #MusicWithoutBarriers - Deaf and disabled people shouldn’t have to miss out when their favourite band is in town due to poor access.
#MusicWithoutBarriers is a campaign for equal access, to raise awareness of the barriers that Deaf and disabled people are currently facing, to change perceptions of disability and highlight the support for making gigs accessible.
Thousands of fans, musicians and other music industry figures agree - here’s Slowdive pledging their support for our campaign for equal access:
"I fully support the #MusicWithoutBarriers campaign. Everyone deserves the right to equality of access to live music events irrespective of ability. Disabilities can take many different forms, some of which are not obvious. Workplaces have to confer to good practice of inclusion for all and so should all music venues and festivals! Having a Deaf and disabled son has truly opened my eyes first hand to the barriers that people can face. Having clear information in advance and well thought out access and facilities can make all the difference." Rachel Goswell, Slowdive
