The State of Canada’s Live Music Industry

Show notes

This week Mike welcomes back to the podcast Erin Benjamin, the president and CEO of the Canadian Live Music Association. The CLMA advocates on behalf of Canadian concert promoters, festivals, presenters, venues, agents, ticketing companies, industry associations, and suppliers. Mike and Erin spoke in late April about the immediate devasting impact the pandemic was having on the live music industry. Now, six months later, Erin is back to offer an update on how things have panned out, what the near- and long-term future looks like for the industry, why keeping the live music industry afloat is economically important, what venues are doing to facilitate live music, and more.
