Are you in the music industry? Take part in the Measuring Music report

Are you a UK Musician, Songwriter, Composer, Producer, Engineer or Manager and would like to be in with the chance of winning the following prizes?...

  • Elektron Digitakt drum computer

  • Sontronics Aria microphone

  • Sennheiser HD 800 headphones

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.

If you are a music producer/engineer, please click here:

If you are a manager, please click here:

And remember, your input will help us to produce Measuring Music which arms us to fight for your collective interests.
