Topic: American Bands touring in the UK - permits?
I'm booking (well pretty much booked now!) a tour for a band from America for late April-May and they're a bit concerned about whether or not they should get permits as they heard about The Copyrights and Pine Hill Haints getting turned away. They're getting t-shirts printed over here and are borrowing all our equipment including guitars, breakables etc so should have no signs of being in a band with them and I think we're even going to ship their merch over too.
But... has anyone here helped a band get work permits for a tour and if so how much money are we talking and how long do they take to process?
Cheers for any advice
