Get involved: UK Live Music Census


Get involved in the UK Live Music Census!

This is a call for music lovers – audiences, musicians, venues, and promoters – to get involved in a new research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The first ever UK Live Music Census launched on 9th March with snapshot censuses taking place in cities across the country. We got fantastic coverage of the event, including BBC BreakfastRadio 4’s Today programmeChannel 4 NewsThe Guardian, and much much more!

nationwide online survey for musicians, audiences, venues, and promoters, is open and collecting data until May.

We need people from all over the country to complete the survey, with a particular focus on the snapshot cities of Brighton, Glasgow, Leeds, Newcastle, Oxford, and Southampton. Please encourage your friends, colleagues and students to complete the surveys to have their say about their relationship with live music in their locale.

One lucky survey respondent will win an iPad! (T&Cs apply).

For more information and to start filling out the survey(s), please go to and click the relevant button (venue, promoter, audience, musician).

Do also please tell everyone about the Census via social media (TwitterFacebookInstagram) using the #ukmusiccensus hashtag.

The Census is being co-ordinated by researchers at the Universities of Edinburgh, Newcastle and Glasgow, in partnership with Musicians’ Union, Music Venue Trust and UK Music, with affiliates at BIMM, Leeds Beckett University and Southampton Solent University.
