The BRITs Backstage: How the show goes on in a pandemic

The Brit Awards will be held on May 11th with a live audience of 4,000 heading to the O2 arena to watch acts like Coldplay, Dua Lipa and Pink on stage. And no-one will be wearing a face mask. How are they going to do that safely? We speak to Genarro Castaldo from the BPI, which organises the annual showcase, who takes us through the enormous logistics of putting together a massive live event under pandemic restrictions. We also look ahead to some of the performances, how music has become more important during lockdown, and the importance of recognising diversity in the UK music industry.
