COVID-19 is causing a downbeat for the music industry.
Huge festivals like South by Southwest and Coachella have been canceled. Live Nation, one of the largest musical promoters in the country, has postponed concerts through the end of March.
Brian Keigher, artistic director of the World Music Institute, says COVID-19 has sparked "major repercussions" for the music industry. Tours are collapsing and businesses within the industry like venues are also feeling the impact, he says.
