Pearle is the European sector federation of organisations in then live performance. Pearle* represents through its members’ associations more than 10,000 theatres, theatre production companies, orchestras and music ensembles, opera houses, ballet and dance companies, festivals, and other organisations within the music and performing arts sector across Europe. Alongside broadcasting, the live performance sector relies on the spectrum in the UHF to guarantee the audio quality that audiences request. Performers and technicians rely on the use of wireless microphone devices to facilitate the work. Pearle*, therefore, calls upon the EU to take this account when addressing radio policy and consequently the regulatory framework. In this regard, Pearle* underlines the necessity for the EU to position culture and cultural diversity at the heart of Europe’s digital policy.
