UK MUSIC WELCOMES GREEN LIGHT FOR RECORDING STUDIOS TO
REMAIN OPEN FOR BUSINESS DURING NEW LOCKDOWN
UK Music Chief Executive Jamie Njoku-Goodwin has welcomed the Government’s “important vote of confidence” in the music industry after ministers confirmed that professional recording studios and music video productions can continue under new national restrictions for England. Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined more details to MPs on Monday about his plan for four-weeks of tougher national restrictions across England that will begin on Thursday November 5th. Following ongoing engagement between UK Music, its members and Government, ministers have reassured the sector that, in line with the detailed guidance the sector developed earlier this year, professional recording studios, including residential studios, can continue to operate under the latest regulations and guidance. It is expected to come into effect from Thursday. Music video production can also continue.
UK Music Chief Executive Jamie Njoku-Goodwin said: “This is extremely welcome news and an important vote of confidence by the Government in the UK music industry and our world-leading recording studios. “I am delighted that ministers have recognised the huge amount of work that has gone into stringent measures to ensure that our studios are Covid-safe environments where work can and should continue. “Studios are a key part of the ecosystem of the UK music industry that contributes £5.2 billion a year to the economy and employs 190,000 people. “We are determined to continue to work with the Government to keep as much of the music industry open as possible as we strive to get the whole industry back on its feet.”
