Live music industry responds to vaccine passport announcement23 November 2021 - Press release
Following the First Ministers statement this afternoon on vaccine passports please find a response from the live music industry. LIVE is the voice of the live music industry and their official trade body.
Greg Parmley, CEO of LIVE said:
"The live music industry is pleased that the Scottish Government has announced that negative lateral flow tests will be included in the covid certification programme in Scotland. While there is still no evidence of the need for such a scheme, and we believe that industry measures to mitigate risk are sufficient, the inclusion of testing will result in a great number of people being able to access live music and provide vital income for the industry."
