Many were due to play at last weekend’s Glastonbury and other summer festivals including All Points East and Parklife.

The artists say: ‘Live music has been one of the UK’s biggest social, cultural, and economic successes of the past decade.

‘But, with no end to social distancing in sight or financial support from Government agreed, the future for concerts and festivals and the hundreds of thousands of people who work in them looks bleak.

‘Until these businesses can operate again, which is likely to be 2021 at the earliest, Government support will be crucial to prevent mass insolvencies and the end of this world-leading industry.’
