New campaign launches in UK asking government to support dance music sector
The campaign, which was launched today, is geared to support nightclubs, dance music events and festivals all of which have yet to receive funding via previously announced measures. Much of the industry is in crisis as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic which has cost many livelihoods and businesses in this sector already.
A statement has been issued alongside a number of call to action requests online:
“The #letusdance campaign is an urgent plea to the government to support UK’s dance music and events sector The call to the government comes since the announcement of a £1.57bn support package for Britain’s arts and culture sector. However, the government narrative to-date on the allocation of this support has not included nightclubs, dance music events and festivals to receive funding from this package for the arts.”
