#LetTheMusicMove was originally established in June 2021 to campaign for reductions in post-Brexit costs and red tape for UK artists and musicians when touring in Europe. 
However, a recent announcement by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has led us to extend this focus in order to raise concerns around potential increases to filing fees attached to specific visa applications – including O and P artists visas
Under these new proposals, the cost of artists visas – which already run into thousands of pounds – would increase by more than 250%.  

You can help #LetTheMusicMove by

  1. Complete a short survey on the proposed changes and their potential impacts. We will present the results to the UK Government and urge them to lobby the DHS 
  2. Submit your comments directly to the federal government and contact your US booking agent and promoter and encourage them to also protest this increase.
  3. Sharing the #LetTheMusicMove campaign to get more signups

The campaign launch comes ahead of this afternoon’s hugely important evidence session held by the DCMS Select Committee, where the Minister of State at Cabinet Office, the Rt Hon Lord Frost CMG, and the Minister for Digital & Culture, Caroline Dinenage MP, will face questions from MPs on EU Visa arrangements for creative workers.

CEO, UK Music

To take a van with your gear and perform across Europe is an essential start for the careers of many UK musicians. Without immediate government action to address the bureaucratic barriers put in place since January 1st, a whole generation of musicians will simply not be able to start or continue their touring careers.
