Groove Tunes champions inclusion in live music

Groove Tunes is more than just an event or gig; it's a movement aimed at making the future of music accessible.

The future of music is accessible. That’s the message of Groove Tunes, a mini-festival that’s bringing headline artists Big Words and Empress to Richmond’s Corner Hotel on 18 May.

Groove Tunes is hosted by Tibi Access, the team behind accessibility at the Australian leg of Taylor Swift’s record-breaking world tour. Founder Dina Bassile has lived experience of the accessibility gaps in Australia’s live music scene, and with Groove Tunes, she’s creating a blueprint for truly inclusive live music events.

“We have an incredibly diverse audience, and what brings everyone together is enjoying live music in an inclusive setting,” Bassile says.

Supporting the headliners at Groove Tunes are Mathilde Anne and Miss Emilia, artists with their own experience of disability and chronic illness, and DJ Mz Rizk, a pioneer of the Australian DJ scene. It’s sure to be a show to remember, and the comprehensive accessibility features ensure everyone can enjoy it.

Attendees will be able to plan their day with a fully accessible website and downloadable social story and venue map ahead of time. Enter the Corner Hotel venue through the accessible entrance and lift, order a drink at the lowered bar, and check the accessible signage if you need help finding your way. Performances will be accompanied by Auslan interpreters, lyric videos, and Subpac vests. When you need a break, a sensory zone is available, as well as accessible and gender-neutral bathroom facilities.

Tickets are on sale now (with complimentary tickets available for Companion Card holders). Follow Groove Tunes on Facebook or Instagram for more updates.
