Brexit and its effects on the music industry and touring

It’s still possible (and not so hard) to tour in the UK after Brexit (and into the EU for UK creatives). A prime for all musicians and creative professionals / technicians and promoters! Since the UK / EU transition period ends on the 31st December 2020, musicians and other creative professionals will have to deal with more “red tape”. This webinar will cover the new requirements as we know them at this time, which will include work permits / visas / Carnets / Payments and Tax. 
Ian’s background is being owner of two agencies for 20 years, working with musicians of all genres and managers from around the world, currently with over 300 artists from Grammy winners to breaking new talent .
