Every round out the door, they need visas and work permits for themselves and the entire team. An administrative nightmare that also takes a long time down the road. After all: all these things are arranged by country in Europe and cost money, not so easy for an artist like Dua Lipa, who visits eight countries during a tour.
As a result, the rounds are less profitable or unprofitable, because the margins during the rounds are already very small. D-Machine 3voor12 podcast was on schedule earlier for this topic.
Fortunately, the UK government has now arranged for artists to do the crossing. This is through negotiations between the British Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) with 19 EU member states. All these artists can travel to these countries for short tours without any hassles.
Not only the Netherlands, but also Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Sweden are allowed to squeeze their hands. The Guardian says other EU countries are yet to wait, but talks are still ongoing.
