UK Music represents the collective interests of the recorded, published and live arms of the UK music industry. It promotes the interests of every part of the music business from record labels and music publishers to songwriters, composers, lyricists, musicians, managers, producers, promoters, venues and collection societies.
UK Music publishes research on the economic value of the music industry and the value of music tourism – domestic and overseas to the economy. In 2016, the music industry contributed £4.4bn to the UK economy in terms of Gross Value Added (GVA).
Representing and promoting the entire music industry since 2008, its role is to guide policy-makers and legislators towards decision-making in the best interests of the music business and the collective interests of our members.
UK Music’s members are AIM, BASCA, BPI, FAC, MMF, MPA, MPG, MU, PPL, PRS for Music and the Live Music Group.
