Three EESC members speak about the particular challenges musicians and other workers in the music industry have faced during the pandemic, how digital tools were used to overcome some of these challenges and their conclusions for the future of the music sector. Janusz Pietkiewicz from the Employers' Group; Maria Nikolopoulou from the Workers' Group and Rachel Brishoual from the Civil Society Organisations' Group discuss the opportunities digitalisation in the music industry offered during the pandemic and how to use this innovation moving forward. They said that live music creates a strong contact between artists and the public, but that online tools are an opportunity to reach new audiences and to experiment with new music expressions.
