Response to the music ban: The government's problem is not the epidemic, but the lifestyle

Despite the lifting of all restrictions and bans since Covid-19 was declared an epidemic until today, there has been a reaction from all sides to the fact that the ban on live music introduced after midnight has not been lifted due to Covid-19 measures.

Politicians, Intellectuals, Artists, Professional Associations, “All Covid-19 Measures; While the mask, distancing, HES code, time restriction, age restriction and curfew have been lifted, why is the ban on live music after midnight still in place?” he asked.

Thousands of people who shared on social media explained that the fact that the music industry with all its components is in a difficult situation is not the government’s problem and that the goal is to intervene in the citizens’ lifestyle.

“HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE PLEASE BRING BREAD TO THEIR HOUSE”

The Professional Association of Music Interpreters (MÜYORBİR) called on Minister of Culture and Tourism Mehmet Nuri Ersoy, Minister of Interior Süleyman Soylu and Minister of Health Fahrettin Koca to lift the ban on live music after midnight and urged to end the ban with the following message :

“In addition to hundreds of thousands of musicians in the music industry, which has stalled or even collapsed for two years, hundreds of thousands of people work in these jobs, particularly in sound and lighting systems, performance halls, live music venues, catering companies, security companies, are struggling with the problem of bringing bread home. At this time when the bans caused by the pandemic are over, this ban will not only hurt the music industry but also the tourism industry, especially considering that the tourism season has started.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE REACTIONS

Sabahat Akkiraz (Artists)

The mask requirement has also been lifted, what about the music ban? What are you waiting for to get it up? Is this ban for health? For politics? For the fallacy that music is a sin? Wouldn’t it be best for all of us if we stopped creating tension and defining lines here as well?

Orhan Aydin (theater performer)

Look at the country! The mask requirement has been lifted, but the music ban continues!

Provides the idea (former Minister of Culture and Tourism)

The mask requirement has been lifted, but the music ban continues after 12 p.m. Because the AKP is not fighting against the epidemic, but with the lifestyle of millions!..

Armagan Caglayan

After the mask requirement has been lifted, our only weapon against the corona virus is the music ban!!!

Oguz Kaan Salici (Deputy CHP Chairman)

HES code, curfew, age and time restrictions have been lifted but there is only one ban left! music ban! The government’s problem isn’t the virus, it’s dictating people’s lifestyles the way they want!

Demet Akaln (Artists)

I’m tired of writing now. Mask, distance, HES code, curfew are lifted, why does the music ban continue? What exactly are you fighting with?

Farouk Evirgen

Dear Demet Akalin. Music is a sin, didn’t the Taliban destroy all musical instruments, so the music ban remains

Nihat Kaya

“Someone has to explain that to us. Why does the music ban remain in place even though the Covid-19 measures have been completely lifted? Why are you condemning tens of thousands of musicians and their families to starvation across Turkey? come out and say; “We don’t interfere in anyone’s lifestyle?” Can’t say there’s no cover left.
