Subfrantic’s Steve Davies was supposed to be at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas looking after the British Music Embassy with Production Park when the COVID-19 crisis hit. As one of the first major casualties of the pandemic, the festival was cancelled and in the space of three days, the freelance touring professionals involved in proceedings witnessed their future work vanish – gig after gig, tour after tour.
