Each year UK Music conducts a survey of British music. Your feedback allows UK Music to produce Measuring Music, an annual report assessing the health of the music sector in the UK. Your input is vital and we need you to fill out one of the survey forms below.
Measuring Music allows us to map the music economy, to analyse trends and to document the day-to-day conditions for hard working performers, writers, composers, producers, engineers and managers.
Our most recent Measuring Music report revealed that 119,020 jobs were supported by music in 2015, generating in excess of £4.1billion for the UK economy. 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 fight against the threats to grassroots music, like the closure of some of the country’s best and most-loved small venues…
It helps us lobby the Treasury for tax incentives (like those the film and video games industry benefit from) to help creators…
It helps us provide tangible evidence why BBC Music services should not be cut or affected by Charter renewal…
It helps us fight to protect the value of your copyrights and your IP…
But most of all it helps us recognise and acknowledge the value of your work!
For all of these reasons, and more, we need your help. Please fill out one of these surveys and enable us to fight for your collective interests.

Gdpr (general Data Protection Regulations)
Members will have read lots about GDPR over the last few months. It is shortly to become law and you need to make sure you are up to speed. By far the best advice we can offer you is to look at the website www.ico.org.uk look at their section on GDPR 'Twelve Steps to Take Now'. This is taking the words straight from the horse's mouth and there is also a questions and answers section if you get into difficulties. It is not an onerous task, for most of our members it will hardly affect us, but there are some points there that need to be noted.
24th May 2018
Everyone and their dog is talking about the new GDPR regulations coming in May this year. But very few people are offering you a concrete solution.
