UK Music is the collective voice of the UK’s world-leading music industry and represents all sectors of our industry – bringing them together to collaborate, campaign, and champion music.
Their annual Summer Party took place this evening in the elegant surroundings of the Institution of Engineering and Technology in Savoy Place, central London.
The event hosted by UK Music Chair Tom Watson and Chief Executive Jamie Njoku-Goodwin, included speeches supporting the industry from House of Commons CMS Committee Chair Caroline Dinenage MP, Shadow DCMS Secretary Lucy Powell, and Chair of the APPG on Music, Kevin Brennan.
The event celebrated the launch of the trade body’s latest report ‘Here, There and Everywhere’, which reveals the huge contribution of music tourism to the UK economy and its importance in all nations and regions. The report outlines the impact of the eagerly anticipated resurgence of live music in 2022 – the first full year of post-pandemic festivals, gigs and concerts in the UK.
