Clubs in Europe - The Nests of Artist Development On The Verge of Collapse

12:30pm - 1:30pm

Meeting 1 (presented by JUMP)


Live clubs are without doubt the cradle of artist development, of tomorrow’s trends, of experimentation, and (counter-)culture. They are the artist's second homes for weeks or months at a time, their source of steady business, and a way to engage with fans.
The pandemic could end up wiping clubs out, especially where content has been placed above commerce - and their closing would leave profound scars.
Some, but by no means all, governments were aware, even before the current crisis, that live music is an integral part of society and had already factored that into their cultural and commercial policies. Now: how are different countries dealing with the pandemic, what virtuous government funds, foundations or goodwill fundraising have been working?
And finally, does the help offered in Italy match up?
