With the hope that music festivals and concerts can start again over the coming weeks and months, the music industry is now emerging from lockdown into a post-Brexit world and facing the reality of its lack of support under the UK’s Withdrawal Agreement with the EU.
In this webinar you have the opportunity to hear our panel of experts discuss:
- how the UK’s immigration system operates for creative persons and in particular for the music industry;
- the immigration system’s shortcomings; and
- the hopes for change to the law.
Tom Kiehl from UK Music (an industry-funded body which represents the British music industry) also talks about the issues facing members as they seek to recover following an exceptionally difficult period. Harriet Harman MP, who has been very active in developing policies to support British musicians, provides insights into her proposals for improving the post-Brexit regulatory landscape for the music industry.
