On 19 September 2022 the Dutch annual conference for pop music venues and festivals took place at TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht. POPLIVE researchers Erik Hitters and Martijn Mulder contributed to this conference by organising a panel session in which they reflected on five years of POPLIVE research. They presented the most important findings of live music in the Netherlands before, during and after COVID, titled ‘Venues and Festivals at a tipping point. After, they discussed the outcomes with Berend Schans (director of the industry association VNPF) and Margriet van Kraats (Creative Director of TivoliVredenburg).
