The Trade and Cooperation Agreement – How to help musicians work in the EU
UK music industry generated £2.9 billion in exports in 2019, a 9% increase from £2.7 billion in 2018.
Most musicians and performers rely on touring and performing in the European Union to make a living. Musicians, and other creative and cultural workers, have specific needs and it is crucial that visa and customs rules post-Brexit take this into account.
An inability to maintain these exports due to restrictions on working in the EU will seriously damage Britain’s image and reputation as well. It will also lead to an increase in unemployment and reduce the sector’s contribution to the economy.
