Recent Facebook guidelines suggest that they will be putting a stop to users producing content with music. From what I’ve read, this includes live streams. Since the Covid pandemic started, more and more musicians have taken to platforms where they can stream and still provide some form of entertainment for their fans.

From a DJ’s perspective, the only way they can continue growing their following, build their personal brand is to perform their sets, live from home. On top of this, the talent that has been spotted has risen astronomically. More and more musicians have been given opportunities they otherwise wouldn’t have.

The music/entertainment industry has arguably been one of the most affected due to Covid. If you’re taking away an artists ability to provide entertainment for their fans, taking away their only shot at being noticed on a big platform, taking away everything they’re working for, then you are destroying this industry. You are destroying someone’s future. So, I’m asking you, what is this issue with an artist doing a live stream, which is a service you provide? You gave us the chance to continue growing. You gave us the chance to display our talent. You gave us a light in an industry where even the government are failing, but now you’re willing to take that away for what?

It’s okay though, because a stream or a video of a violent crime, shootings, protests, riots or someone attracted to children is perfectly suitable viewing isn’t it? Whereas a musician can’t provide entertainment for their fans in these uncertain times.

Where’s your logic?

I’m asking you to sign this petition in order to try to overrule these new guidelines. For some of you, this may seem pathetic. But for others, you’re destroying the only chance we have left.

Thank you.
