European DJs and Artists Will Require a Visa to Perform in the UK Starting 2021

Earlier this week, Britain’s Home Office announced that EU artists and performers will need to apply for a Tier 5 visa to work in the UK once the Brexit transition comes to an end in December.
This controversial decision will halt freedom of movement for any live performers between the UK and the EU. A Tier 5 visa will cost performers up to £244 and requires a certificate of sponsorship. Once granted, the permit will last between 12 to 24 months.
There have been a lot of disagreements on this subject within the UK government, Culture Minister Nigel Adams stated last month that “it was absolutely essential” to protect free movement for artists post 2020 in an interview with Music Week.
Music industry groups in the UK have started petitions demanding a free or affordable two-year working visa for artists and performers.
