Cities can create conditions for live music to thrive | Toronto Star

“Cities that want to attract diverse, thriving populations should look at creative musical culture in new ways and take steps to create conditions for live music to thrive or even continue:

  • Municipalities must bring culture groups together to find ways to better distribute development charges so live music venues can benefit.
  • Music venues should be license compliant, so music creators and publishers are compensated fairly and legally for the use of their work, creating conditions for yet more music to be made.
  • Music lovers should frequent only venues that hold live music licenses, which ensure music creators receive what they have rightfully and legally earned, while also supporting local businesses and the economy.”
