Our mutual friends in the Netherlands are holding a Music Festival !!!

Yes, a legal one, an experiment, while the rest of the country and most of Europe is still under Covid restrictions. It looks cold, but looks and sounds wonderful.

Do you wish you could be there? Is it ethical? What do you think?

The recorded music industry made $21.6bn (£15.7bn) last year, the highest figure since 2002.

Revenues grew by 7.4%, driven by the success of artists like Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift and Drake in the charts.

BTS had the best-selling album, Map Of The Soul: 7; while The Weeknd's retro-pop anthem Blinding Lights was the biggest single, shifting 2.7bn copies.

Streaming sites like Spotify and Apple Music accounted for 62.1% of all revenues, reaching $13.4bn (£9.7bn).

Likely lost in the “junk” folder of your email, is a notice from Spotify explaining an increase in subscription costs as of Feb. 1, 2021. The increase may cost you up to an additional $2.26 per month, depending on which plan you are subscribed, and what zip code is attached to account.

Besides that they also increased prices in Scandinavia to cover their money loss. Deezer does not increase plans, they instead lowered them (annually). Spotify plan to increase everywhere.
