Arts Council England Confirms Dance Music Events are Eligible for £1.57 Billion Relief Package – EDM.com



In a major win for a dance music culture throttled by the impact of COVID-19, Arts Council England has confirmed that the country’s nightlife sector will be eligible to receive financial support from the government’s unprecedented £1.57 billion rescue package.

According to a report by the Evening Standard, the initial announcement of the package made an ambiguous mention of “live music venues,” which drew the ire of the region’s clubbing sector. The announcement led to the formulation of the Fatboy Slim-backed “#LetUsDance” initiative, which pressured the UK Government to acknowledge the electronic dance music scene as an explicit beneficiary of the relief package.
