What is the LIVELIVE Initiative?
LIVELIVE is a ground-breaking mental health initiative launched by Lewis Capaldi in association with Music and You and Interlude Artists, that will take place throughout the singer-songwriter's UK arena tour in March 2020. The aim of this project is to provide mental health support to fans who love live music yet suffer from anxiety and/or panic attacks whilst in those busy concert environments.
What will the LIVELIVE Initiative Offer?
Fans will be able to access support from a qualified team at each venue before, during and after the show. There will also be designated help points for anyone struggling emotionally, a safe space for anyone who needs time out, and a gig buddy system for fans travelling to the show alone.
The key components of this initiative are:
• Safe Space for fans to take time out if they are suffering from anxiety and/or panic attacks.
• Buddy System. Fans (particularly those travelling alone) can meet at a designated point before doors open, before the show starts & after the show to connect with other fans and travel home safely together.
• Helpline for fans to contact before, during or after the show
• Help Desk in the LIVELIVE Zone to answer any enquiries. Also the help desk is there to provide information about mental health and the initiative in general.
Where will the LIVELIVE Zone be located?
There will be a designated space within the arena. The location and directions to the area will be signposted throughout the venue on the day.
