Musicians join call for government-backed live event cover
2nd March 2021 (Insurance Business UK). A host of musical performers have lent their voices to the call for the UK government to underwrite cancellation costs of live events such as music festivals. The acts, which include Jools Holland, The Chemical Brothers, Depeche Mode, Johnny Marr, Sir Cliff Richard, Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey, Amy McDonald, Frank Turner and Judas Priest, say that the move will help restart the live entertainment industry this summer. This follows a recent YouGov survey that found that half of the UK population want to go see a live event this summer, while 75% believe such events are an important part of British culture.
