Openback

Feb 28 2023 • 1 hr 8 mins

Local music venues are shutting down nationwide at a SHOCKING rate. 2 Every week... This week we are joined by award-winning promoter Luke Hinton. Luke has been in the independent promotions business for over 15 years, working tirelessly to support the foundation of our industry. A foundation which has taken the ultimate beating over the last few years, and doesn't seem to be getting back up. Covid, the energy crisis, the rising cost of living; a constant barrage of hurdles for an already financially struggling sector.  "Unsigned bands are crap" that's the consensus from Radio X DJ Chris Moyles.  So what can YOU do to help rebuild and save the very bedrock of the music industry? Luke has a few ideas you've probably never considered before.
