As a necessary part of the social restrictions in place to save lives during the pandemic, an unfortunate causality was the live music scene. Whatever genre you choose to listen to, classic or jazz; hip hop or punk; folk or metal; the electricity of a live gig just cannot be beat. Our lives were not quite the same without supporting our favourites in big arenas and local scene alike. So now, more than ever, it is so incredibly important to support our local music scene to ensure that it can continue to exist.

This guidance includes advice on managing your contact details and post-decision support, such as acknowledging the grant and requesting a payment. Hubs are coordinated by the Hub lead organisation, which takes on responsibility for the funding and governance of the Hub.

In England, music services may be part of a Music Education Hub – groups of organisations working together to create joined-up music education provision.

In 2018, Soul’d Out Productions sued Coachella over its excessive “territorial exclusivity” clause, which prevented artists from playing another festival in North America—or any event in nearby counties—for almost six months. Coachella had also restricted announcements of any other US gigs until their own lineup was published.
