Pandemic on the Dancefloor…

The COVID-19 Pandemic has derailed the music business causing destructive soundwaves Ripling out and destroying years of music workers livelihoods.

Nick has voiced his concern on the ensuing Pandemic and the long-standing effects it will have on the live music business and his friends within it. “ the Pandemic has ground the U.K.’s multi million pound music business to a halt, causing catastrophic knock on affect to everyone associated within the industry. Not only affecting artists but record labels, independent recording companies, freelancers, venues, festivals and agents. This year could change the face of the music industry for ever”

Thousands of festivals and tours have been cancelled or postponed leaving creatives and their fans feeling uncertainty for the future. The music and entertainment industry relies on their heavily freelance creative workforce. The loss of their income, usually for completed work only, may force many creatives out of the industry forever. Many talented people could find themselves redeployed into vocations that do not represent their talents, which will be a total loss for the UK’s music industry.

“ I’m particularly worried about the new aspiring musical acts who rely on live music festivals and tours to showcase their talents and get a footing on the music ladder many talented artists may go undiscovered“

The rise of music streaming, virtual live shows, podcasts and FB streaming is encouraging and many have found innovative ways to keep the music live and to keep fans listening.

“ I think that once we come out of the other side of this, the music industry will experience a boom. If artists and their associated workers can survive this brief period of hardship there is a potential for the music industry to begin to thrive again as fans flock back to the music scene.

Life without music is like a life without love“
