LIVE is the voice of the UK’s contemporary live music sector

LIVE (Live music Industry Venues & Entertainment) represents the full breadth of the UK’s live music business, a business that, while still managing Covid lockdowns and business interruptions in 2021, was worth £1.8bn and employed over 118,000 people.

Established in October 2020 in response to the ongoing pandemic, LIVE brings the industry’s trade associations under one umbrella group as a single, united voice.

In addition to our policy and research work, LIVE runs a full calendar of events throughout the year … culminating in the LIVE Awards, a celebration of world class UK live music sector.
