Advice on Boycotting Events

Music is an artistic expression, a vehicle to challenge political, social & financial structures.We would stress the importance of creators supporting each other in challenging times and respecting differences of belief.

All musicians should be free to make their own individual choice.

While respectful dialogue is important, we would ask creators not to pressure colleagues or fellow artists into boycotting certain events.

We don’t know what someone’s personal circumstances are, and may not know their own political views or heritage.

The UK music community should be an inclusive and supportive space.
