Live Music inquiry

Live Music inquiry

The inquiry will look at the economic, cultural and social benefits of live music. Music tourism contributes £4 billion to the UK economy that year. However, despite the fact that festival and concert attendance continues to grow, the number of grassroots music venues have seen a drastic decline. In addition, the growth of secondary ticketing continues to frustrate the public and threaten the sustainability of live music events. MPs will also use this inquiry to investigate ticket abuse. Written evidence can be submitted via the live music inquiry evidence portal on the Committee’s website until 5pm on the 28 FEBRUARY 2018.
