The UK Live Music Industry in a post-2019 era: A Globalised Local Perspective

Patrycja Rozbicka, Adam Behr, Craig Hamilton

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report is the second in a series
produced through an on-going,
collaborative programme of research
being undertaken by a team at Aston
University, Birmingham City University
and Newcastle University. The
Birmingham Live Music Project (BLMP)
seeks to explore how the live music
ecology of Birmingham and beyond
is constituted, and how the sector is
approaching challenges related to
local, national and international change.
Specifically, it explores how those
challenges are being managed at a local
level, and whether any coping strategies
identified within the Birmingham live
music sector could be applied to other
urban areas. This report is based on
activities conducted within a project
titled ‘The UK Live Music Industry in
post 2019 era: A Globalised Local
Perspective’ made possible by a grant
from the Creative Industries Policy and
Evidence Centre (PEC), which is led
by Nesta and funded by the Arts and
Humanities Research Council. The
research took place between February
2020 and April 2021.
