- This week in Music Week, we take an in-depth look at how the music business is going to handle the disruption to the summer festival season. As the coronavirus crisis continues to hit the live sector hard, a host of big live names survey the damage done – and discuss possible salvage plans.
- Also this week, as the crisis sees labels rip up the release schedules, we talk to streaming, retail and recorded music execs about the ramifications of moving big album drops. And we report from the grassroots venue frontline, as the nation's independent live circuit struggles to survive.
- Elsewhere in this essential issue, the Association Of British Orchestras' Mark Pemberton explains why classical musicians and organisations need more support if they are to survive the global shutdown; and Music Week Songwriter Of The Year Savan Kotecha tells us the secrets behind Demi Lovato's Cool For The Summer in the latest Hitmakers.
- Plus! Decca-signed singer-songwriter Rhys Lewis stars in On The Radar; jazzy Jamie Cullum takes on The Aftershow; and there’s all our usual enhanced news, new music, analysis, charts coverage and market share statistics.
