Grammy Museum Experience Prudential Center has announced today the return of its annual Summer Session music industry program, which will run from Monday, Aug. 17, to Friday, Aug. 21, hosted online by Zoom.
Dustin Moore, head of strategy for Embarc, a cannabis events and retail company, said he expects the business will become increasingly legitimate at sporting and music events in the next five to 10 years.
Between his Rebel Lounge and other venues in the region booked through his company, local promoter and venue operator Stephen Chilton and his team booked more than 600 shows last year. This year looks like it will end with 75. “I’m not very optimistic we’ll do any more this year,” he said.
The federal CARES Act has distributed billions of dollars to states and municipalities during the COVID-19 crisis. But as it’s written and implemented now, hundreds of publicly owned facilities have been shut out of the program, according to officials with IAVM and lobbying firm TwinLogic Strategies.
