The British government has tried to ensure that British artists can go on a European tour visa-free after Brexit, but she says the European Union has rejected the proposal. This leaves a spokesperson BBC to know, to know.
Residents of the UK will still be allowed to travel to the EU from Friday. However, if they wish to do so (within 180 days) for more than 90 days, they need a visa.
BBC states that 90 days will be enough for most artists, but that this rule is interpreted in different ways by different Member States. For example, Spain, Italy and Denmark require work permits from UK gangs.
“The UK pushed for a more ambitious deal with the EU that would allow musicians to move more freely in different member states. But our proposals were rejected.”
Former Culture Minister Nigel Adams has said in the past that it will be absolutely essential for artists to be able to perform freely in the EU after Brexit.
Now that that doesn’t seem to be working, over 200,000 people have signed a petition to allow artists to travel across Europe visa-free. The petition will be discussed in the UK House of Commons.
