An article on the rising costs facing bands wanting to play at venues mentioned the word cabotage.

Cabotage is the transport of goods or passengers between two places in the same country by a transport operator from another country for the purposes of hire and reward.

There’s a consultation document issued by the Department for Transport under the title “Road Transport Cabotage: Consultation about further flexibilities during 2022 for foreign hauliers”

The article said venues had closed and more were closing because of COVID and Brexit.

Perhaps soon there will only be remote recording – hard to imagine given the powerful feelings that concerts bring out in audiences
