How the live music sector in Europe joins forces
The music sector in Europe is very fragmented: the different branches of the sector (live music operators, managers, publishers…) do not spontaneously cooperate together. This means that all the research, development or advocacy are done separately, which leads to a plurality of systems also depending on the music operatorʼs size, business models or region. Although this plurality is crucial to sustain a diversity of people and places, we can deplore that so much of the music organisations do not work together and are rather into dynamics of competition and private benefit.
What if we find alternative work models, in order to collectively build a sustainable and fair future for all live music scenes, workers, volunteers, artists and audiences?
