#Dont Stop The Dance - Open Letter to the German Government

Electronic Music Scene Unites

In an open let­ter from the ini­tia­tive Book­ing Unit­ed, DJ’s, live acts, pro­duc­ers and their agents and man­agers — in short, music and cul­ture cre­ators of the elec­tron­ic scene — turn to the Ger­man gov­ern­ment. Patrons of the ini­tia­tive are, among oth­ers, Sven Väth, Dr. Motte, Ellen Allien, Paul van Dyk and Mousse T.

Using the hash­tag #dontstopthedance, Book­ing Unit­ed — an ini­tia­tive of about 140 agen­cies and over 2,500 artists from the elec­tron­ic music scene — has sent an open let­ter to the Ger­man gov­ern­ment. In this let­ter, the par­tic­i­pants demand noth­ing less than the pro­tec­tion of the indus­try and sup­port for self-employed soloists, small artists and asso­ci­at­ed trades dur­ing the Covid-19 crisis.

The let­ter was sent to the var­i­ous min­istries and also to mem­bers of par­lia­ments from sev­er­al Ger­man states on Sep­tem­ber 30.

Recognition for the Electronic Music Culture

It is above all about sol­i­dar­i­ty and the still out­stand­ing recog­ni­tion as an impor­tant part of Ger­man culture.

Please sup­port this ini­tia­tive by shar­ing this action in the social media. ❤️
