Live music industry continues to grow in the UK says new report - A report published today shows that the British music industry is continuing year on year to contribute more to the UK economy generating £4.1bn in 2014.

The first time it has crossed the £4 billion mark (it was £3.8b in 2013), with live music revenue contributing a quarter of that according to figures published by trade body UK Music (here). The report does not distinguish music festivals from the live music market as a whole. The music industry market grew by 5%, which is faster than the British economy as whole, which grew at around half that pace (2.6%) in the same period. Whilst money from recorded music continues to fall, Britain is the second-largest provider of recorded music in the world, accounting for 13.7% of global sales, there's a continued increase in revenue from live music sales, which jumped 17% to £924m.

The report also reveals that 117,000 people are employed by the British music industry, it added, of which 69,300 were professional musicians. Independent music festivals contribute £1billion to UK economy. “To celebrate that success we have launched Festival Fever to highlight the importance of independent music festivals and to illustrate the huge diversity of wonderful events and experiences our members stage throughout the year.”

Festival Fever will highlight the cultural and economic impact of independent festivals, with members using a digital badge across their social media platforms stating, 'Proudly independent'. Another key component is the launch of AIF TV, a dedicated YouTube channel, which will host a competition for the best fan footage shot at an AIF member festival in 2014. AIF co-founder Rob da Bank added: “Who’d have thought our little organisation, which started off with five festivals meeting in a broom cupboard, would grow to be a economic powerhouse generating over a billion quid in four years for the economy?” Thumbnail from gettyimages. Out of tune: how music festival ticket prices keep moving on up | Money.

Inflation may be at 0%, but if you are a live music fan you will almost certainly be paying more this year for your annual festival fix than you did last year. The UK festival season kicks off later this month with The Great Escape, when hundreds of up-and-coming bands from around the world take over Brighton’s bars, nightclubs and concert halls for three days. Scores of events will then take place over the summer before the party finally winds up in mid-September, when Bestival on the Isle of Wight will bring things to a colourful close. However, some might say that festival prices, like house prices, appear to have become detached from reality. The face value cost of a weekend ticket to the Latitude festival in Suffolk in July has leapt 103% since 2006, the year the event launched, while the price of admission to the V Festival and the Reading festival has risen by 57% and 52% respectively over the same period.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of the first Glastonbury Festival and it's all very exciting! As festival revellers pray for the weather to remain dry and crystal clear - and mourn the loss of the Foo Fighters from the line-up - there are facts and figures that could blow your Glastonbury-going mind.

Even if you're just going to sit at home with a nice brew and watch the festival on TV, this will float your boat. Check out some statistics about the event's history below: The money made from ticket sales over the lifetime of the festival to date is £325m. This is the equivalent (in today's prices) of the third highest-grossing rock tour of all time, the Rolling Stones' Voodoo Lounge tour of 1994-5. The cost of staging a music festival: 'We spent £30,000 on the waste'

As you hike in through the gates of whichever festivals you attend this summer, you might survey the scene – a miniature city, centred around stages, with its own infrastructure – and imagine that the £170 or so that you and tens of thousands of others have paid is going to make quite a lot of people quite a lot of money. You’ll be paying for the bands, of course, but you’ll also be ensuring the promoter’s bank balance looks an awful lot healthier. Right? Hardly. The economics of festivals are finely poised.

These events wobble on a knife-edge between glorious success and ignominious bankruptcy, and looking at where the money goes is a sobering undertaking. The first thing to remember is that a chunk of money has been taken from what you paid for your ticket even before the promoters and bands take their shares. There’s an automatic deduction of 20% in VAT, and 3% goes to PRS, which collects the money owed to songwriters for performances of their songs. Aligned to this is sponsorship. Independent Music Festivals Contribute £1 Billion to UK Economy. From Glastonbury to Isle of Wight to Download, the United Kingdom boasts one of the busiest, most vibrant festival markets in the world, with the past decade seeing a groundswell in the number of independent festivals trading.

Many of the smaller independent events attract audiences of no more than several thousand, but over the past five years they have collectively contributed over £1 billion ($1.5 billion) to the U.K. economy, according to new figures released by the Association of Independent Festivals (AIF). The report states that in 2014, over 635,000 people attended AIF’s 50 member festivals, which range from the 50,000-capacity Bestival, staged on the Isle of Wight, to the 5,000-capacity math-rock festival ArcTanGent, held in Bristol. As a result, £296 million ($445 million) was injected into the British economy.
