Face The Music Campaign – We need a new deal for musicians.

Our  latest campaign, Face The Music, is calling on the UK Government to Face The Music and work with the EU to negotiate a solution, in the form of a new bilateral agreement, to the post-Brexit barriers facing musicians.

This includes UK musicians who want to work and tour in the EU, and their European counterparts who need and want to perform in the UK. At the moment UK musicians have to have separate contracts for every country they visit in the EU. It is prohibitively expensive.

Watch the massive barriers now facing musicians like Andy Saunders in this webinar from Glasgow loves EU.

Sign up for our campaign today and pledge your support for the music industry:

Join us when we Busk Against Brexit on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile – all musicians welcome!

  • Semi-Detached General Election in Scotland
    As the pre-general election campaign hots up, the polls still project a massive Labour landslide. And so, several commentators are turning to contemplating questions such as whether a Labour government needs a better opposition than a collapsing, much-shrunken Tory party will provide, or whether the Tories will really implode for a long time or revive under an even further right leader, or how far or fast Keir Starmer might move on closer EU-UK relations.… Read More »
  • Brexit and the Brussels Effect
    The Scottish Government wants to align its policies/legislation with the EU but willy nilly is failing to do so – and ignoring the Brussels Effect or how the EU sets the golden regulatory standard.… Read More »
  • EU-Scotland Relations after Brexit: Where Next?
    By Kirsty Hughes This article was first published in Kirsty Hughes’s substack: https://kirstyhughes.substack.com/p/eu-scotland-relations-after-brexit.
