UK airport asks musicians to play for free, and quickly regrets itmain
Message from East Midlands Airport, handling five million passengers a year:
We are always looking for new ways to enhance our passenger experience whilst they are with us at the airport and, what better way than by showcasing some of our region’s best musical talent? Unfortunately we can’t offer performers a fee, but they will be well looked after by our staff while enjoying the opportunity to perform in front of a captive audience.
Might be a good venue for tuba practice.
UPDATE: 24 hours later, the airport withdrew the invitation and apologised.
