The Annual Music Survey


Measuring Music is compiled annually to assess the health of the industry in the UK, gathering economic data and feedback from those working within the business.

It allows UK Music – the umbrella body representing the various sectors of the industry including musicians via the MU – to map the music economy, analyse trends, and document the day-to-day conditions for those working within it.

The input of performers, writers, composers, producers, engineers and managers is vital to the survey, building the economic case for the industry.

Take the survey that’s right for you:

If you are a musician/songwriter/composer, please take this survey

If you are a music producer/engineer, please take this survey

If you are a manager, please take this survey.

Why it matters

The data gathered feeds into UK Music’s work including efforts to fight threats to grassroots venues, lobbying the Treasury for tax incentives and protecting intellectual property rights among many things.

In addition, this year’s survey will seek information about how the music community expects to be affected by the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.

Prize draw

Those who complete the survey will be entered into a prize draw, with a chance to win an Elektron Digitakt drum computer, a Sontronics Aria microphone and Sennheiser HD 800 headphones.
