Led by Glenn Miller, Head of Digital at Creative Artists Agency, our panel will explore challenges and the impacts the music industry as faced as a result of Covid-19. With a year of festivals, gigs and tours on standstill, how have artists stayed connected with fans and audiences and maintained their revenue from music consumption. What affect has a global lockdown seen on streaming, radio and new music releases? How have venues responded and how will the crisis continue to disrupt them beyond lockdown? Join us as our expert panel tackle the big questions and examine if the music industry ever be the same again, or if the creativity born out of the Covid-19 response will remain ingrained in our relationship with music.
