Does the BBC introducing criteria have a bias towards bands/ artists that play live only ?
Uh, no idea. Ask the BBC?
I’m pretty sure they also play artists that do not do live performances (because some friends of friends have been played up in Scotland that do electronic music and do not play live), but that said, yes, that’s not something we know about directly or anything that MusicBrainz has any influence on. All we do is provide data
