The MU is delighted to report that as a result of industry pressure and some great work by LIVE and the Association of British Orchestras (ABO) and their counterparts in Spain, visas are no longer required for musicians engaging in short term work.
This will be a very welcome breath of fresh air for UK artists.
Dave Webster, MU Live Performance Organiser said:
The music industry has been focussing on the issues around Spain since the beginning of the year. The team at the ABO and LIVE need to be congratulated on this achievement. Some welcome news for musicians whilst we wait for the detail around this.
