With Brexit looming, we bring together a host of leading European business figures from the live and recording sector as well as UK MPs to explore the potential impacts post-Brexit Britain will have on the music industry.
Live music currently contributes around £1 billion to the UK economy. Brexit imposes huge barriers on free movement, tariffs, duties and carnets for musicians and their teams. Not only this, but physical music sales account for a huge percentage of music sales, however Brexit threats to increase the risks of import regulations and reducing access to pressing plants.
This panel aims to uncover the potential hurdles we as an industry will face and how we can protect the vibrant UK music scene.
