90% of grassroots music venues are under threat of closure. They need a £50 million cash injection to ensure they do not go out of business. Music festivals support £85,000 jobs, but with the entire summer cancelled, many are currently facing collapse. The UK is home to the most popular arenas in the world, yet they are set to lose five million visitors due to COVID-19. The live music industry added £4.5bn to the economy in 2019 and supported 210,000 jobs across the country. Up to 50% of the live music industry’s workforce is facing unemployment leading to a catastrophic loss of skills.
