The White Stripes (rock duo) wouldn't need a licence, however many amplifiers they were plugged into, while a string quartet would. It encouraged promoters to put on just solo performers or duos.

The White Stripes plugging in amplifiers would be subject to noise regulations. Acoustic music (like a string quartet) is also subject to noise regulations - the difference is they rarely break them.

Let's just remember this does not apply to Scotland - the world does not seem to have collapsed any more than it has in most other European countries.
