Joint Letter on Reopening Live Events

European Associations from the performing and live music sector address a joint letter to Commissioner Mariya Gabriel (Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth) and Commissioner Thierry Breton (Internal Market).

Following a first letter asking the European Commission for the implementation of a reopening strategy, this new letter aims to share recommendations on the necessary next steps to be taken for a coordinated safe reopening of live music events.

It is more than ever the time to start acting, with a cultural sector standing still for more than a year now. The live music sector more particularly is suffering very badly from the situation, with a second pandemic summer coming up.
