Glastonbury devotes stage to disabled musicians
Friday 25 June 2010
This year's Glastonbury is devoting a stage to disabled musicians. Club Attitude, the club event from Attitude Is Everything will showcase both disabled and non-disabled musicians for five hours on the Hub Stage in the Shangri-La field tomorrow.
Last year was the first time that Attitude Is Everything came to Glastonbury, but since 2005 it has been working in partnership with the festival team to improve access facilities for deaf and disabled people on-site, as well as recruiting deaf and disabled volunteers to be part of the Glastonbury stewarding team.
Drugstore are headlining this year's stage, which will also include the unsigned ska-punk band Lá Reblá Fam, whose founding member Simon Suspense Spenser has cerebral palsy. There will also be a Deaf Rave, which aims to bring music and visuals to the deaf community worldwide. MC Geezer will be rapping in sign language and DJ Inigo and DJ Ceri will spin the discs. There will be an accessible viewing area for wheelchair-users as well as BSL interpreters.
