Summer Camp are to headline this year's Club Attitude.

The annual event is put on by Attitude is Everything – a charity set up to improve access to live music for deaf and disabled fans.

This year's show takes place on March 26 at Islington Assembly Hall. Support on the night will some from The Art Club and Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences. XFM's John Kennedy will compare and DJ at the gig.

"It's absolutely shocking that some venues just don't take accessibility into account, and that's why it's so great to be able to play Club Attitude and raise awareness about it," Summer Camp's Jeremy Warmsley said.

"Club Attitude is all about making live music accessible to everyone. Our events highlight best practice access for disabled music fans to demonstrate how easy it is to put on fully inclusive gigs that anyone can enjoy," Attitude Is Everything's Business and Operations Manager Graham Griffiths told NME. "Having worked with Slow Club, Ghostpoet and Wave Machines over the past couple of years, we’re really excited to be welcoming Summer Camp to Islington Assembly Hall next week."

Blaine Harrison from Mystery Jets, who is a patron of the charity said: "We played Club Attitude early on in our career and they are really good memories for me. For the majority of promoters in town, disabled clubbers are barely on the radar so it’s incredibly positive to have events actively encouraging disabled people to get out and watch bands. Live music should be for everyone."
