Participant Information for Venue Survey

What? The UK Live Music Census is the first ever national music census in the world to map live music activity across a whole country.

Who? It is being run by researchers at the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle.

Why? Your data will help to understand the value of live music and help to protect it.

How long? This survey should take around 20 minutes – you can save and continue at any point if you would like to complete it later. Please note that very few questions are mandatory and that because of the ‘skip logic’, the percentage bar can be misleading – you may be closer to the end of the survey than you think!

What happens to my data? Your data is protected under the Data Protection Act 1998, and will only be shared with other parties as set out in the participation information below.

What is the UK Live Music Census?
Live music is popular across the UK, and has become increasingly important to musicians and to the music industries. And yet recent years have been difficult for some of the venues in which live music takes place. Still not enough is known about the challenges facing venues across the UK, or how they tie into why different groups of people – audiences, musicians, promoters, venues – value live music.

The UK Live Music Census will be the first ever national music census in the world to map live music activity across a whole country.

A snapshot census will take place from noon on Thursday 9 March to noon on Friday 10 March 2017. A nationwide online survey will be open from 9 March to 31 May 2017.
