British Summer Time Hyde Park won awards for Ticketing Without barriers and the Customer Service Award, while the SSE Arena won the award for Best Venue over 500 Capacity.

The Oustanding Attitude Awards comprise of 10 categories and is intended to celebrate innovation and best practice across the music industry when it comes to making live music accessible for Deaf and disabled music fans.

The winners are selected by an independent panel of music fans, artists, journalists and other industry experts from a wide-ranging shortlist, with the award recipients announced on 12 March at an accessible ceremony at Islington Assembly Hall.

Other award recipients this year include the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, which won the Big Ambition Award, and the Tech Innovation Award, which went to SoundSense.

“What we’re really celebrating today is good customer service. Deaf and disabled people are amongst the UK’s most vociferous music fans. Millions of us attend live music events, and millions more would like to. We are a significant part of the music community. We’ve just got different needs.

Today’s winners represent some shining examples of how the live music business is responding to this demand. I would like to congratulate all of them, and all of our nominees, not only for the brilliant work that they’ve been doing but also for the inspiration they can offer to others. The Outstanding Attitude Awards is proof that everyone in live music, from the biggest festival to the smallest venue can step up and make a change.” – Attitude is Everything Founder & CEO, Suzanne Bull MBE
