The European live music sector has faced a crisis like no other in the last 18 months. For an industry relying on public events, international mobility and cultural tourism, which have all been entirely suspended for the best part of the pandemic, this unprecedented moment has been particularly impactful. Our panel brings together European professionals representing all sectors of the live music ecosystem (booking, venues, festivals, export offices) to try and answer a simple question: after such a long crisis, how much damage are we talking about? How bad is it today for artists, live music professionals, the touring business, the events sector? And on a more positive note, our experts will also describe the lessons learned for the industry, suggest solutions to get back on track and draw perspectives for the future.
