“Music is at the centre of the well-being of our spirit, of our body and mind. It’s not only entertainment, it’s more than that!”

After 15 months of lockdowns all over Europe without concerts, festivals, clubs and other live music events, the music sector is not yet saved, despite some reopenings in many countries. It is a crucial time to reboost the sector and help it to recover from this unexpected pandemic.
Therefore, following two joint letters on reopening and relaunch of the live music sector, Live DMA, together with 75 other signatories, continue to communicate with the European Commission to ensure that the live music sector if not forgotten. In this new letter, the network proposes some guidelines to ensure a front row seat for music in the future.
The European Network for Live Music Associations is a European non-governmental network working to support and to promote the conditions of the live music sector. Live DMA is by nature an international collaboration network based on shared visions and values. Ever since its foundation, exchange of best practices and experiences have been the pivot of the network’s existence.
