Wahl-O-Mat Musik

Was die Musikwirtschaft von den Parteien erwarten darf

Sessions / Talk / Politics / Basic


It is not only the predicate "irrelevant" that weighs heavily. What is happening and what has happened with the pandemic and the policy of lockdowns, the inequalities between the funding programmes for companies and the self-employed, the differences between institutionalised culture and the free economy part of the creative industries, is striking. It is also striking that culture or even pop culture are not exactly the topics that receive much attention in the election campaign. What is certain, however, is that the consequences of the Corona crisis will have a longer and more serious impact on large parts of the music industry and many of the freelancers working in it, such as musicians, small traders or service providers, than is the case in other "system-relevant" sectors of the economy.

But what do the democratic parties have to offer the clientele in and around the music industry? To anticipate, among other things, "minimum wages" (SPD), exemption from the broadcasting licence requirement for live streams (FDP) and, on the occasion of the Corona crisis, a so-called "subsistence allowance" for cultural workers in the amount of 1,200 euros (Bündnis 90/ Die Grünen & Die Linke) as well as the continuation of "Neustart Kultur" for all players and sectors (CDU).
