Light Up Live - Live Event Community

It's not only musicians who have been struggling during the pandemic, so many people work in the background to make sure the entertainment industry delivers the best possible shows for us to enjoy, sound people, stage hands, video technichians, lighting technicians, riggers, managers, publicists, promoters, bar staff, venue owners and booking agents to name a few.

On Tuesday September 22nd, 2020, an hour after sundown, the Live Event Community are asking technicians, suppliers and venues across the Canada to light the night red – raising awareness for an industry that is still dark as a direct result of COVID-19.

Workers who have been affected in the industry say it best ....
