The Impact of Brexit on Music - The Elektrik Cave / Gathering - Brexit and Music
Last week on the show we discussed what the impact of Brexit might be on the UK music industry.
This month I spoke to the people working in music to understand what the impact of this decision we made two years ago will do to the music we love. With 6 months until exit day, the country seems surprisingly unruffled at the fact that we are still deep in negotiations. Through the conversations I had, it becomes clear that the calm exterior isn’t reflective of the mood.
This episode of Gathering looks at the impact on music through the voices of our music bodies, venues, shops, labels, vinyl mastering and dubplate specialists and of course the musicians.
Thanks to everyone who got involved in the show…
