Testimony from an attendee of Leeds Festival 2018

Firstly I would like to say what an amazing team you all are and what a privilege it has been to meet you all.

My partner Ryan, bought me the tickets to Sunday at Leeds Festival as a birthday surprise (April). I loved music and Panic at the Disco are one of my favourite bands (have been since age 17). Ryan booked the tickets as my hearing is dropping considerably and rapidly. knowing that one day I won’t be able to listen/hear the music I have grown up with and love so much is one of the main reasons Ryan bought me the ticket ( see panic at the disco, papa roach, sum 41, deaf havana) while I can still kind of hear them.

Since April I have become more and more stressed about coming to the festival and not be able to fully enjoy it. on the way to the festival, I was so upset and nervous about, what it was going to be like, will i be able to hear, it outdoor so sound is lost, where can I position myself so I can see and hear best, the list is endless… ( I have never been to a festival before)

I didn’t know that BSL performance interpretation was something that could be accessed until I saw your tent!

All the team was so friendly and welcoming. You all went above and beyond to explain what Performance interpretation is and how it works and how it can help me enjoy the festival to its full potential. Arranging the access tickets, WOW!

Seein the performance of panic at the disco, with interpretation was (heartwarming, I nearly cried) for the first time in about 10 years I could watch a band I loved and understand the lyrics and fully enjoy the performance. the interpretation made it feel so real like I could really understand the music, the lyrics, and the atmosphere. The energy the performance interpreter’s had was electric.

The team: Since being told I was deaf (12 years ago) and starting learning BSL and deaf culture, and not really feeling like I fitted into the hearing world or Deaf world. I felt comfortable and you all made me feel welcome and I felt that I was part of the group. I felt like I finally belonged, not in one world but both, That I can’t thank you enough for. Thank you all.

Your team has made me feel like I can enjoy music again and not be worried or think I can’t go or do that.

Please thank the rest of your team for making what has been one of the best music events I have ever been to possible, because of the work you do.

Thank you all very much

After a highly successful 2018 12-event arena tour across 10 cities we are delighted to announce that we will be hosting Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama in April 2019.

In keeping with her commitment to make her events accessible to as many people as possible, Mrs. Obama and Live Nation will donate a portion of ticket inventory in each market to various organizations including, but not limited to, charities, schools, and community groups in each city the tour visits. Those fans will receive free admission to the tour stop in their city.

Attendees at Mrs. Obama’s events will hear her honest reflections on the experiences and events, both public and private, that have shaped her, from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her years spent at the most famous address in the world. Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States – the first African-American to serve in that role – she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world.

“I couldn’t be more excited to visit even more cities across the country and around the world,” Mrs. Obama said. “I’ve been so humbled by the response to the tour thus far and the overwhelming interest we’ve received from so many communities we weren’t able to visit this year. That’s why I’m thrilled that we’re able to expand our conversations to these new settings and wider audiences. I can’t wait to continue the discussions that have been so meaningful for me and, I hope, for so many others.”
