GECAT - Getting Artists Back on the Road

Ivar Storm Peersen Enslaved / GramArt / IAO

image.png European touring is in crisis and we need to find a solution to get artists back on the road. This is even more important in the context of a lasting pandemic, where live shows represent the music sector's best shot at recovery.
In August, IMPALA and IAO released a proposal to create a new cultural area for the whole of Europe – the EU and neighbours. This would remove some of the barriers that negatively impact on small and medium music tours across greater Europe - from facilitating artists' mobility via the creation of a single touring permit, to reducing administrative costs and red tape.
In this session, IMPALA and IAO will present their proposal and discuss how to make sure that ALL artists get back on tour.
