Since March 2020 the live music industry have not been allowed to work as a result of the pandemic, with many industry professionals falling through the cracks when it has come to financial support.


With no clear pathway on how we can get back to gigs, the industry is in trouble. Suppliers are going out of business, small venues are facing closure, and talented specialists are leaving the industry to find new careers.


'This Is Just An Interval' hears accounts from a cross section of the live music industry including artists, promoters, equipment suppliers, and freelance professionals that make up the 'live events supply chain'.
