LSE Podcast #11 – January 2020

The first Live Style Europe radioshow of 2020 focuses on advocacy within the European live music sector. Advocacy means “public support for an idea, plan, or way of doing something”. Learn more about how Live DMA advocates for better conditions for the live music sector and the several campaigns we took part in the last few months in the first part of the podcast.

There are other ways of advocating, and everybody can do its part to #SupportYourLocalMusicScene.
Open Club Day is a European-wide event aimed at live music venues and clubs. On Saturday, 1st of February 2020, venues and clubs all around the continent open their doors for free during daytime for the audience to discover these places differently. Through the organisation of a variety of activities (guided tours, disco for kids, panel presentations, workshops, coffee and board games…), clubs demystify the negative stereotypes that may be attached to them and offer people to spend time differently in their club. We had the chance to interview Marcos Vazquez from La Fabrica de Chocolate, a live music club in Vigo, Spain on their participation to the third European edition of Open Club Day.

This podcast also features an interview of Arkaitz Villar from Kultura Live, the live music association for the Basque Country.
