The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on all the sectors devoted to music (included that of early music) is being radical. Many music festivals have been cancelled, rescheduled or have completely adapted their programs in 2020, with the consequent ripple effect on all the agents involved in the production of live music, including programmers, artists, agencies, self-employed workers (technicians and production staff), journalists, audiences and the fragile recording and editorial industry related to this sector. Beyond the short-term effect, the long-term consequences of the pandemic can be predicted. The pandemic offers new opportunities and intensifies the access to contents through technological networks (from important platforms to social videos), but also involves a determinant impact on the idea of public concert and a transformation of the relationship between the agents of the sector. All this is conditioning our habits of listening to music. Moreover, the pandemic has a deep influence on the cultural tourism and also on the local economic development associated with many festivals.

Against this extraordinary background, characterised by its novelty and unpredictability, this discussion forum aims to serve as a meeting point for the agents that conforms the sector of historical music in Spain. In particular, it has a twofold objective: to perform a diagnosis of the current situation resulting from the pandemic and its consequences in the last months, and to explore the challenges and strategies required for the adaptation of a particularly fragile sector to the new panorama. How is the early music sector assimilating this change of paradigm? What are the new opportunities after the pandemic?
