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

Kaiser Chiefs have announced the release of anthemic new single ‘People Know How To Love One Another’ alongside details of a UK arena tour in January 2020. They will stop at The O2 on Saturday 1 February 2020, with special guests Razorlight.

‘People Know…’ is the lead single from the Kaiser Chiefs forthcoming new album Duck and follows hot on the heels of Record Collection, which gave fans their first taste of the new album. Duck, released on July 26th through Polydor, is the sound of one of the most successful British guitar bands of the millennium reclaiming the creative swagger that underpins their strongest work. “It’s undeniably fantastic and undeniably Kaiser Chiefs,” says frontman Ricky Wilson.

Fifteen years into their career, the band, completed by Andrew “Whitey” White (guitar), Peanut (keyboards) and Vijay Mistry (drums), are hitting new artistic peaks. “It’s more exciting than it’s ever been,” says Wilson. “Every time there’s a big obstacle, it just gets blown away in the wind like a dandelion. We’re still selling out arenas but under the radar. We can make albums forever.”
