PLEASE READ & TAKE ACTION ACCORDINGLY

You may already know that the new regulations concerning public entertainment licenses will damage the music scene in Britain beyond repair. Essentially, while the overhaul will loosen up Britain's pub hours (the sweetener), any kind of public performance will be regulated to within an inch of it's life (the aftertaste). Venues already have to possess a live licence for a band to play, or to play any kind of recorded music to an audience (even house parties & the like will theoretically have to be licensed, & can be shut down instantaniously without one), but now the individual must have (purchase & be granted) one as well or they can be fined up to £20,000. It's just one more problem for smaller venues to deal with and will certainly make them think twice about having live music at all. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. There isn't one of us that this ruling wont affect.

Bye bye local music scene..

Please, please, please sign against this New law for licenses click here

Please forward on to your address book
Thought Id stick it up in heerre :thumbsup:

And like the (UK) Crimianl Justice Bill (To shut down Raves and Dance Music Events), you know they'll apply it as widely as possible, like including DJ sets as Live music performances.

Watch yo' Self, cos they are!

Also, (too obvious to mention,) any Techno / DnB act / DJs who use Drum Machines / Samplers / Keyboards/ Programmed stuff of any kind, (quite a lot of experimental people outside mainstream DnB DJs can be classed as live acts).

:puke:

But if they'll close 'IT' down, they'll just make the underground stronger, they can't shut it down.

The Illegal 'Squat' Parties are alive and well in London, and are my true inspiration...

They are mainly Techno, but a lot of ruffneck DnB droppin also.

bigups stu, thanks for that. it's not just live music, you'll have to have a license to play any kinda music (even pre-recorded) to an audience (even yo mates round your house). so if they want to fuck you they can with no reason. happy days...

the most unfair aspect of this new legislation is the fact that its the smaller promoters and performers who will end up suffering the most because of it. i think that those organizers who promote the larger events will inevitably find ways round the new laws, wheras smaller, local promoters will find that the cost of setting up nights becomes too high to make it worthwhile.
