Great artists, from Justin Bieber to Arlo Parks, canceled their shows because of concerns about their mental health. Not only the people on stage struggle. How do we turn mental well-being into a daily topic within this sector, next to listening figures and success? And how do we ensure that mental well-being is not only the responsibility of the artist, but of the entire music chain? We will discuss this with artists, labels, managers and music festivals. Where in the chain can steps be taken? How do they deal with mental well-being in the music industry in other counties? What can we learn from that in the Netherlands? - This panel is made possible in part by the Ministry of Social Affairs -
