Many in the UK believe that the night time sector (clubs and live music) is being treated unfairly during the Covid-19 pandemic due to lack of care or support. Deciding to rise against this unjust treatment and to make the government pay attention to the needs of the entertainment sector, an organised protest called Save Our Scene happened over the past weekend.
On June 27, tens of thousands of people turned out to Regent Street in London to march with some of the UK’s leading artists such as Solardo, Alan Fitzpatrick, Franky Wah and many more who provided music on trucks to the marchers. Backed by the Night Time Industries Association (NTIA), the march aimed to stand up against the restrictions that are currently preventing nightclubs and event spaces from opening their doors despite test events showing that events are no more dangerous than going to the shops, and sports events allowing crowds up to a certain capacity.
