Brexit: Pressure mounts on UK government to resolve EU touring visas for musicians
12th January 2021 (BBC News). Pressure is mounting on the UK government to resolve issues around EU touring visas for musicians and crews. Since leaving the EU, British musicians are no longer guaranteed visa-free travel and may need additional work permits to play in some countries. Composer and cross-bench member of the House of Lords, Michael Berkeley, said it left many in a "perilous position". The Association of Independent Music called for the two sides "to speedily return to negotiating".
