The new edition of Music Week is out now.
Following the appalling attack that took place at Ariana Grande’s Manchester Arena show last week, Music Week speaks to some of the live industry’s foremost figures to find out what implications it might have on touring in the UK and, most importantly, how the industry can pull together to prevent these kinds of events from happening at future live events.
Outgoing UK Music chief executive Jo DIpple sits down for The Big Interview, as she reflects on nine illustrious years with the trade body, while new MIDEM director Alexandre Deniot tells us why he think the biz needs the Cannes show more than ever.
Elsewhere, Music Week delves into the latest RAJAR figures to unearth the key trends affecting the world of radio, and a host of leading companies from across the market explain what they are doing to help encourage diversity and greater representation across the business.
Meanwhile, Giles Martin, son of legendary Beatles producer George Martin, sits down for an in-depth chat about the 50th anniversary release of the iconic Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band record.
In addition, PPL chief executive Peter Leathem gives us the inside track on the firm’s record-breaking 2016 financial performance and Reservoir’s managing director Annette Barrett discusses the company’s new partnership with Big Life.
On top of that, we have all the very latest new music news and innovative sync deals happening across the industry, plus Alan Jones’ in-depth charts analysis.
