The Problem

As the UK’s lockdown restrictions begin to ease, the live music industry is gradually returning to being a regular setting for concert-goers. However, as a result of the financial crisis during the pandemic, many venues have been forced to permanently shut their doors. During this pandemic, musicians and fans became more creative by using an internet-facilitated approach to retain the same parasocial relationship. Despite this solution being incredibly successful, it has rarely been used since the reopening of venues, subsequently many music lovers remain unable to attend concerts due to a lack of acknowledgement surrounding covid anxiety.
