The festival industry will try to seize this opportunity as the COVID-19 restrictions are eased further in the UK.

“For the vast majority of musicians, the live circuit is their lifeblood,” Help Musicians CEO James Ainscough said of the need for touring’s comeback in Europe. “Whether that performance is at a function or a festival, a grassroots venue or a world-famous stage, live performance is the fragile gig economy that all musicians rely on.”
