Music Industry Will ‘Pause’ June 2nd In Response To Death Of George Floyd

Over the past week, the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota ignited a response from the world aimed at police brutality and racism. These responses have been both negative and positive; from the rioting in major cities, to the over 5,000 person attendance of a peaceful protest at Minneapolis’ own U.S. Bank Stadium.

In the music community, we include music in to guide us through times of sadness, anger, and joy. With the recent events this past week, some artists have taken a step back from their normal routines, such as promoting music or doing live streams. Others have continued to provide music to meet the needs of those who use music as a coping tool.

On Tuesday, June 2nd, everyone in the music industry is coming together for “Black Out Tuesday”. This day will focus on the industry disconnecting from work and reconnecting with their communities. Everything from social media posts to music releases will be temporarily ‘paused’, promoting the day with the hashtag #theshowmustbepaused .
