Independent Venue Week

It’s Independent Venue Week this week and as part of the proceedings CMU is presenting three free online panels. Check out today’s session at 5pm.

The challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in the live music community more proactively collaborating, sharing ideas and campaigning in a joined-up fashion.

How could such collaboration benefit the live music industry beyond COVID and how can it be best achieved? How important is it for the different strands of the live sector – promoters, venues, agents, ticketing companies, tour managers and production crews – to regularly connect and speak as one?

Does the live industry need to work more closely with the record industry, the music publishers and the artist managers? And how can major players in live music better support the independents?
