Boomtown Fair news: An estimated 35% of small music venues have closed down in the UK in the last de

Latest update from Boomtown Fair

An estimated 35% of small music venues have closed down in the UK in the last decade due to new developments being built near by.

Grassroots music venues play a vital role in nurturing local talent and the exposure bands get through smaller venues and festivals is central to the musical diversity our country has become known for across the world.

With the news that Thekla Bristol could be the next victim, a venue that has provided a platform for a huge number of artists we see on the Boomtown bill over the years, please check out Music Venue Trust and Savenightlife for more information to help preserve the musical heritage we should all be so proud to be part of.

#SaveThekla

Today we're joining forces with artists, venues, festivals, other industry professionals and fans to call on the UK government to offer vital support to the live industry. ❀️

Music Festivals in the UK support 85, 000 jobs. Many have lost their entire incomes for a year and 59% redundancies are expected across the sector without further support.

Join in with the campaign by sharing photos and videos of your last pre-lockdown gig using the hashtag #letthemusicplay...🎢

surely it's more than 85,000 that work at festivals if you include all the support staff, caterers, stallholders, technicians, stewards, security, traffic marshals, etc etc?

Hmmmm, not many top hats in the picture.

Let's not forget the thousands of volunteers that make these festivals happen also!!!!
