Wednesday afternoon at ILMC sees a panel dedicated to the Ukrainian live music industry in the wake of the Russian invasion. With scores of concerts cancelled, behemoths such as Live Nation and OVG severing ties with Putin’s nation, and promoters and agents in Ukraine forced to flee their homes or seek shelter underground, the implications for live music are severe.

Ukraine: Conflict in Europe is headed by promoter, talent buyer and artist agent Nick Hobbs (Charmenko), and will bring together touring executives from the region – both in-person and remotely – to cut through the misinformation and discuss the likely repercussions for the future of the concert business in Ukraine, Russia and beyond.
