IMPALA, the European independent music companies association, set up a Covid-19 Task Force right at the start of the crisis to help address the effects of the current crisis on the independent sector in Europe.
On 25th March 2020, to try and secure a co-ordinated approach across Europe to minimise the impact of Covid-19 on the independent music sector, IMPALA's Task force published a crisis plan seeking urgent action at EU, national and sector level.
Alongside this crisis plan, IMPALA released on 29th April 2020 a proposed ten-step roadmap with a timeline seeking decisions in May through to September and beyond. The roadmap sets out financial and non-financial tools to increase liquidity in the music and broader cultural industries.
On 30th November, with most of Europe at varying stages of second wave lockdown and gradual deconfinement expected, IMPALA’s Covid-19 Task Force has issued a new call for action. Nine months after the start of the Covid-19 crisis, the new plan aims to take stock and look ahead to what’s needed now to help the industry weather the second wave, recover and grow in the longer term.
