Disabled People to the Front
Live music venues continue to be stagnant in their accessibility, despite the Americans with Disabilities Act being signed into law over 30 years ago. That’s where the movement of “disabled people to the front” comes in.

Announcing Our Summer Panel Series
Half Access is so excited to announce that we’re hosting a virtual summer panel series this year!! From The Crowd To The Stage: A Look At Accessibility In The Music Industry will take place the last Saturday of June, July, and August at 11am PST and cover a wide range of issues. This conversation is especially important for us to have as COVID-19 restrictions begin to lift and we see concerts coming back in the late summer and early fall. It’s crucial to keep accessibility to live music venues at the front of our minds to make sure everyone can safely enjoy their first show back.
