Prior to the show, from 1pm Climate Music Blowout will host a series of panels considering how record labels, the live music community, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and artists can play a part in continuing to green the music business and use their power to encourage action from fans.
The event will open with an introductory address from Mike Smith, global president of Downtown Music and Trustee of Earth Percent. Climate Music Blowout will also feature addresses on the issues that matter within the digital sphere to identify areas of discussion for a future event dedicated to the sector.
In a statement, Music Declares Emergency said: “The UK music industry has made definitive and public commitments in recent times to action on sustainability and has the ambition to do far more. By bringing everyone together after such a period of separation by screens we aim to connect all parts of UK music to encourage everyone present to share the huge talent for innovation that has been the hallmark of our industry since its birth.”
