The MU set up the MU Fair Play Venue scheme in 2013, inviting venues to declare their support for the fair treatment of musicians and their opposition to pay-to-play and unfair ticketing deals by signing up to the Fair Play Scheme.
Fair Play Venues can be identified by the sticker displayed on the premises, but now the Fair Play Venue database allows you to search those venues online for the first time.
Loop are one of the latest venues to sign up to the scheme. Loop aims to be a hub for alternative music. They’ve hosted Experimental live production, Hip Hop, Grunge, Digipunk, Hardcore, Drum n Bass, Indie, Rock and often have DJs playing a range of dance music.
MU Senior Regional Officer Natalie Witts‑Kilshaw welcomed the new addition:
“Tottenham has an incredible musical heritage and history, and Loop is now part of that rich legacy. Live music is a vital part of our communities, and I am proud to see a venue local to me supporting our Fair Play principles.”
MU National Organiser for Live Performance, Dave Webster commented on how the network continues to be vital:
“After the last two years, it’s great to see new venues coming on board with our Fair Play Venue scheme. We have built a national network of Venues that support fair terms and conditions for musicians. It’s vital that following the lockdowns and lack of access to venues and live music, musicians can rebuild their live profile and make a living. Loop is a welcome addition.”
Saturday nights are Loop’s live music night which is their preferred day, but it’s flexible depending on the circumstances and they are open to all event types and music.
