New edition of Music Week out now

The new issue of Music Week is a star-studded affair as we welcome one of the world's most successful management companies, Tap Music, to the cover alongside its A-list roster. 

Inside, we meet co-founders Ben Mawson and Ed Millett, plus superstar clients Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Ellie Goulding and Dermot Kennedy to get the full story on the company's rise and rise - and their plans to ensure a golden future. 

In this week's Big Story, we speak to leading figures in the dance world who discuss the significant impact on the sector resulting from Ibiza’s decision to keep clubs closed on the island this summer.

Also in news, ATC head of brand partnerships Gary Cohen talks about how brand deals are providing a vital source of supplementary income during the live shutdown, and we explore Live Nation's plans to restart the UK's concert industry with their Utilita Live From The Drive-In summer concert series.  

The big names keep on coming in Hitmakers, where Rita Ora shares the story of her 2017 smash Anywhere, and The Aftershow, which stars Suzi Quatro to mark the rock'n'roll legend's brilliant new documentary Suzi Q.

Elsewhere, in a special report, we speak to the leading lights of the neighbouring rights sector about its increasingly valuable role as a money-spinner for artists and labels, and analyse how the market is likely to be impacted by Covid-19.

Lila Iké’s Jamaican sound is the subject of this week's On The Radar and director/photographer Jordan Rossi shares his favourite new sounds in Tastemakers.

The hook up between Michaela Coel’s acclaimed new BBC/HBO series I May Destroy You and Little Simz's 2016 track Picture Perfect is the focus of this week's Sync Story, while Lancashire singer/songwriter Christian Alexander is spotlighted in Making Waves and Columbia A&R manager Muna Ruumi is our latest Rising Star.
