UK artist trade body the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) has announced its latest crop of artist ambassadors.
There are 19 of them, including some famous names: Bob Geldof, Aluna, Ghostpoet, Roni Size, Shaun Ryder, Roger Sanchez and Maxi Jazz out of Faithless. However, there are also some newer artists in the group: Dream Wife, Bishi, Porridge Radio and The Lady Blacktronika for example.
“It is these artists that create the records, pack the venues and sell out the festivals that make our whole industry a success story. We welcome them at a time when the music industry and in particular, music creators, are facing an existential challenge from the impact of the global pandemic,” said FAC boss David Martin.
