76 International, European & national music organisation are “Claiming a front row seat for music” calling for policy makers to fully acknowledge the artistic, social and economic value of the music sector and to live up to these words in political decision making!
After 15 months of lockdowns all over Europe without concerts, festivals, clubs and other live music events, the music sector is not yet saved, despite some reopenings in many countries. It is a crucial time to reboost the sector and help it to recover from this unexpected pandemic.
Therefore, following two joint letters on reopening and relaunch of the live music sector, we, with 75 other signatories, continue to communicate with the European Commission to ensure that the live music sector if not forgotten. In this new letter, we propose some guidelines to ensure a front row seat for music in the future.
