But what people were truly surprised to see was a sign language expert standing on the edge of the stage, interpreting the lyrics and the beats for the deaf and hard-of-hearing audience at Lollapalooza. A journalist named Rishi Darda shared a video. Have a look:

Several people online lauded this initiative and called it a great gesture promoting inclusivity. Here’s what some of them said:

In case you are wondering, many deaf and hard-of-hearing people do attend music festivals because it is not just about the music, but also about the vibe of the place. So many people coming together and celebrating the music that connects them is not just for the abled. People with disabilities also deserve to be a part of such events, and they do!

Kudos to the organizers for this!
