The increasing popularity of tribute acts in pop music: is it just a form of ‘babyboomer-entertainment’ or is it the new cool thing for younger generations? How do music venues and the audience think about tribute acts and how does the future of tribute look like? All this and more is discussed in the POPLIVE Tribute Podcast.
The impressive music venue TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht (NL) was the location for the Dutch national conference on music venues, festivals and events on October 2, 2019. POPLIVE participated in three panels during the conference that was organised by our project partner, the Dutch association of music venues and festivals (VNPF). This blogpost presents our contributions to panels on nightclubbing, risk and trust in live music, and urban pop music policy.
