The UK music industry, pivotal to our cultural and economic success, has been severely impacted by post-Brexit travel restrictions. A dedicated EU Visa could help facilitate easier movement of artists and crew within the EU, helping to ensure the continued vibrancy and global reach of British music. We think initiative will help preserve jobs, encourage cultural exchange, and maintain the UK's esteemed position in the global music scene, benefiting both the industry and broader cultural sectors.
