I have been a DJ for 20+ years and have relied on that income most of my adult life, unpredictable as it may be. It never made me rich, but I made enough to feed my family and I had a lot of fun doing it. Everything I was booked to play at this summer, including some of the biggest events I been asked to play at in years, was canceled or postponed, no deposits paid on almost everything. Every other musician on the planet is affected, plus anyone else whose income relies on art in some way, that’s performers but also staging, sound, lights, events spaces, event security etc. The list is huge. The lockdown has been extended, the UK government has announced they will not support artists and the creative industry any more as it is viewed as being unnecessary.
