16.04.2019: UK Music is today launching our annual music industry survey including, importantly, of music creators.
We’re asking artists, composers, writers and producers to fill in our 2019 survey to allow us to analyse trends and to document day-to-day conditions in the UK music business.
The document is a key asset to industry professionals, politicians, policymakers, journalists and other stakeholders. You can read the report we released last year here.
Our last report revealed that the UK music industry contributed £4.5bn to the UK economy and sustained over 145,000 jobs.
Music is the engine room of the creative economy and this report gives us the hard statistics we need to negotiate the best policies for your future.
- It helps us to shape industrial strategy for the creative industries. It also helps us fight against the threats to grassroots music, like the closure of some of the country’s cherished music venues.
- It supports our work making the case for the music industry to the Government and politicians.
- It helps us fight to protect the value of copyright and intellectual property and get a fair deal for everyone from creators to investors.
But most of all it allows us to recognise and acknowledge the value of your work.
