Tony Wilson's long-term partner, Yvette Livesey, recently spoke with BBC 6, during which she discussed the future of In The City. The festival will be continuing, as it is something she considered vital to keep his legacy alive.
She said: "We obviously didn't expect him to die so soon actually, because his drugs actually were working and everything seemed to be alright. But we did have the discussion about whether both In The City and the other projects that Tony and I were working on were going to go ahead and we absolutely believed that these things should have gone ahead anyway."
While many music fans around the world are still mourning the loss of Wilson, it is reassuring to know that at least one part of his hand in cultivating new music will live on.
