3 July 2017

The UK live music industry welcomed nearly 28 million fans in 2015 with music tourism contributing £3.7 billion to the UK economy. We recognise the great success our live music concerts and festivals have in attracting people from across the UK and from overseas and the significant benefit this has to local economies. My department works closely with UK Music and I look forward to welcoming their new report on the contribution of live music to the UK economy within the next few weeks.
