15.03.2021: UK Music is marking one year since live music was forced to pause due to the pandemic with a panel featuring a fantastic line-up of guests.
One year since Covid-19 forced the live music sector into silence, UK Music is hosting a lunchtime webinar event to explore what needs to be done to get live music back on stage.
In ‘Lockdown One Year On: How Do We Ensure The Music Industry Can Deliver The Sounds of Summer?’, our expert line-up of panellists from across the industry discuss what support the industry needs to put on a great summer of British music.
Chaired by UK Music’s Chief Executive Jamie Njoku-Goodwin, our stellar line up of panellists include:
- Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Music and Member of Parliament for Somerton and Frome David Warburton MP.
- Ben Lovett, recording artist, promoter, venue owner. Ben is a founding member of the BRIT award winning Mumford & Sons. Ben also founded Venue Group and has launched London venue highlights Omeara and Lafayette.
- Director of Communications and Strategy Boomtown Fair, Anna Wade. Anna gave evidence earlier this year to the DCMS Select Committee for their inquiry on the future of festivals.
