@sean and the DiS page shared this on facebook, here’s my comment
nothing much will change
the major labels don’t give a shit cos they’ve now adapted to the new world, they’re back to making lots of money
the tories don’t give a shit, they see no reason to spend any government money on the arts even in good times and even more so in the hyper austerity that’s coming from the double whammy of coronavirus and brexit unemployment/general economic mess etc.
the general public don’t give a shit cos there’s more than enough music out there to enjoy for free
meanwhile, the ecosystem underneath it all, the small venues, the bands who play them, and everything/everyone that’s connected will get fucked to oblivion economically, then they’ll all be told to either find a new job or starve
as with a lot of other things, coronavirus isn’t completely changing things but is accelerating existing trends
