If you've got 10 minutes on your hands, there's a live music survey here:
The UK’s first ever live music census – a ‘Springwatch’ for live music. The Census covers all genres and we take a broad definition of live music to include events featuring DJs.
For 24 hours from noon on 9 March 2017, we will track performances in cities across the country – from lone buskers to massed choirs, from pub gigs to stadium concerts – in Glasgow, Newcastle, Oxford, Leeds, Southampton and Brighton. Volunteers will be asked to record aspects of the gig including the musical genre, the venue, door charge and audience demographic.
A nationwide online survey for musicians, venues, promoters and audiences will also go live on 9 March and will be open until 8 May.
We hope the survey – a UK and world first – will help measure live music’s cultural and economic value, discover what challenges the industry is facing, and inform policy to help it flourish.
Click the relevant button to start taking the survey and to enter a prize draw to win an iPad (T&Cs apply). Choose the button which best describes your relationship to live music – you are allowed to answer more than survey type (audience, musician, venue, promoter) but only one entry per person is allowed per survey type.
