UK Music welcomes lockdown rules on recording

In November 2020 UK Music Chief Executive Jamie Njoku-Goodwin welcomed the Government’s “important vote of confidence” in the music industry after ministers confirmed that professional recording studios and music video productions can continue under new national restrictions for England.

Following ongoing engagement between UK Music, its members and Government, ministers have reassured the sector that, in line with the detailed guidance the sector developed earlier this year, professional recording studios, including residential studios, can continue to operate under the latest regulations and guidance. It is expected to come into effect from Thursday. Music video production can also continue.

UK Music Chief Executive Jamie Njoku-Goodwin said: “This is extremely welcome news and an important vote of confidence by the Government in the UK music industry and our world-leading recording studios.

“I am delighted that ministers have recognised the huge amount of work that has gone into stringent measures to ensure that our studios are Covid-safe environments where work can and should continue.

“Studios are a key part of the ecosystem of the UK music industry that contributes £5.2 billion a year to the economy and employs 190,000 people."
