TAKE ACTION, SUPPORT INDIE VENUES

Ninety percent of independent venues report they will have to close within months without federal funding. With live events providing 75% of all artists' income, the loss of live events and music venues will affect each and every person in the music industry. 

TAKE ACTION: Head to SaveOurStages.com and sign a letter today letting your representatives know you support the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), the Save Our Stages Act and the RESTART Act. The hope is for Congress to have a resolution by the end of this week, before recess. 

More info on the legislation:

  • Finances payroll, benefits, and fixed operating costs
  • Expands eligibility, giving access to small businesses with part-time employees
