The UK live music industry has joined forces to form its own industry body, knows as LIVE.

This newly established federation will be the future voice of the UK’s live music economy. Membership is made up of 13 principal industry associations across the sector, representing 3,150 companies, over 4,000 artists and 2,000 backstage workers.

Greg Parmley (CEO, Live music Industry Venues & Entertainment), said: “It’s long overdue that the UK’s live music industry has a properly representative body, and LIVE will be that unified voice as the industry comes out of lockdown and beyond. The unprecedented challenges we face might paint a bleak picture, and this is a critical time, but together we can help protect jobs and the future of live music, as we move toward restoring the UK industry to its world leading best.”
