Most music product, vinyl, CDs, cassettes, is manufactured in the EU. Physical product is already costing more with the falling pound but will be even more expensive post Brexit. I’m hoping to buy the Abbey Road box set before the sh*t really hits the fan.
Downloads will also rise in price. The pound now isn’t worth the 99p tracks are priced at.
Streaming is unbelievably cheap at the moment but that is not sustainable in the medium and long term. Streaming firms all lose money hand over fist.
Live music will also be more expensive. Artists will need permits and all manner of paperwork to transport their equipment, their instruments and themselves to and from the UK, boosting the price.
Best to batten down the hatches and just enjoy the record collections we’ve already accumulated.
