Being a musician can be one of the most fulfilling and awarding jobs one could ever have but saying that, it can be one of the most difficult positions to fill. It takes really hard work if you want to be respected by your peers in a very hard industry . The music industry can be cold and sometimes brutal. Let’s be clear not every artist is going to make it through to for fill their dreams, some may have a one hit career and you never hear from them again but unfortunately only a few get to that level.

What we have been seeing many years is a rise in mental illness amongst musicians. With the pandemic covid-19 this has made thing even worst in today’s world. As we all struggle with lockdowns and restrictions this has effected musicians severely . With the Venus closing down the world This has hit the venue sector hard, concerts being canceled and air flights being restricted it has left many musicians without any means of finance as music is their only means of income. The venue owners are being effected badly by the virus some can no longer operate in these conditions and are being forced to close their doors for good. There is still al to of speculation around the insurance situation in the industry

This has left meany musician depressed and in some cases suicidal, in a tough industry as it stands this could be the final straw for many musicians trying to make a living from music.

There is still a lot of speculation around the music insurance situation. Due to the fact that venues have been closed on government orders there wouldn’t be any cover for this situation. Artist would be liable for any funds they have spent and all deposits would be refundable ( subject to contract ) the promoter would be liable for any funds that they spend towards the event.

Gigs, socially distanced or otherwise, have effectively been banned in areas of England placed under a "high" and "very high" alert level.
The Prime Minister announced a new series of tiered local lockdown measures to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic in the House Of Commons today (October 12), and while live music was not mentioned directly, households and support bubbles subject to the strongest two levels of restrictions will no longer be able to mix indoors from Wednesday making gigs impossible. 
Additionally, in areas under "very high" restrictions households are also banned from mixing in private or in gardens while pubs and bars must also close.
Areas under the medium level of restrictions will remain subject to the current rule of six and a 10pm curfew for hospitality, so with socially distant concerts taking place under these rules recently gigs could, presumably, continue.
