Soundfestival finale threatened by Brexit, say organisers

The organisers of Scotland’s soundfestival have stated that the festival’s finale weekend is under threat, following a Government debate on artist visas post Brexit. During the debate, Home Office minister Seema Kennedy MP stated that ‘on 31 October freedom of movement as we know it will cease’, implying that artists from the European Economic Area (EEA) will need visas to enter and perform in the UK. The programme for the closing weekend of the festival includes performances by groups from France and the Netherlands, with the majority of the musicians due to arrive in Scotland on 1 November. This programme, according to the festival, is now being ‘thrown into doubt’.
