Let The Music Play

Together, we call on the UK government to offer the music industry support in these challenging and difficult times.

Last year the live music industry added £4.5bn to the economy and supported hundreds of thousands of jobs across the country.

A huge percentage of the live music industry's workforce is facing unemployment, leading to a catastrophic loss of skills.

Music festivals alone support around 85,000 jobs, but with the entire summer cancelled, many are currently facing collapse.

90% of grassroots music venues, where the big bands of today once learned their trade, and where a lot of people unwind at the weekends enjoying live music, are under threat of closure.
