The article focuses on the call by the British Medical Association (BMA) to ban all alcohol advertising in sports and music sponsorship. According to BMA, this has to be done in order to reduce the growing problem of alcohol consumption especially for teens. However, it mentions that this proposal could cause financial losses to the live music industry such as DF Concerts Ltd. in Scotland that promotes the "T in the Park." Moreover, Geoff Ellis, a festival director, disagreed on the proposal.
