Let The Music Play

Today we have a heartfelt request to all out followers; please share this blog post far and wide.

This call for government action comes as new research commissioned by the industry demonstrates the vital economic contribution of the live music sector. In addition supporting 210,000 jobs across the country, venues, concerts and festivals added £4.5bn to the economy in 2019.

But, because they’re unable to operate with any level of social distancing, concerts and festivals are unlikely to take place again in the UK until 2021 at the earliest. Many hundreds of redundancies have already been made, with the potential for tens of thousands to follow this year.

Even if bands do survive this crisis, they may not have anywhere to play in the future unless something is done soon.
