The Feed - Music Deaths
COVID lockdowns saw the immediate shutdown of the music industry. For the first time, The Feed reveals the deadly toll of those decisions: a spate of suicides and deaths across the country. Many loved ones of those who died blame the government for not doing enough to support the industry. They say the support was too little, too late and didn’t get to where it was needed. With the lifeline that was JobKeeper now over, some worry that more deaths are coming.
The Feed was broadcast on SBS ONE at Tuesday 25 May 2021, 12:30.
