The UK’s live music industry is on its knees. Artists are asking the government to act now to prevent the permanent closure of venues and festivals along with a colossal loss of jobs. ⠀

Just last year the live music industry contributed £4.5bn to the UK economy, supporting 210,000 jobs across the country. ⠀

I miss travelling around the country to see my favourite artists just as much as I miss performing shows of my own. Now I fear for the future of live music. ⠀
