UK Music have launched their 2020 survey for music creators.
This survey contributes to UK Music’s flagship annual economic study Music By Numbers, which is published in the Autumn. You can read last year’s report here.
UK Music write: ‘By completing this survey, YOU enable UK Music and its member organisations to be more effective in speaking to government on issues that impact you. This would not be possible without hard economic data to demonstrate how music contributes to the UK economy. This is why we ask you to complete this survey every year.’
‘We have been very successful in securing support for live music venues, copyright protection and performers’ rights, but in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic there has never been a more important time to speak to government and government is listening.’
Last year’s Music By Numbers report revealed:
- The UK music industry contributed £5.2 billion to the UK economy in 2018.
- The total export revenue of the music industry was £2.7 billion in 2018.
- Employment in the industry hit an all-time high of 190,935 in 2018.
- Music tourism alone contributed £4.5 billion spend to the UK economy in 2018 - up 12% from £4 billion in 2017.
The survey is set to run up until 12 June 2020.
