How to get involved in #LetTheMusicPlay

The campaign is now encouraging friends to show their support for live entertainment. In order to show the scale of the ecosystem that makes up this wonderful industry, we are asking you to do the following on Tuesday 4th August:

  1. Post a CREW video or photo of your last show, with the hashtag #LetTheMusicPlay
  2. Shae other #LetTheMusicPlay posts and industry statistics
  3. Encouraging your colleagues, networks, family and friends to do the same.

It is great to see our industry join together for Let The Music Play. This coordinated activity will be vital in ensuring the Government hears the message and understands the depth of the industry and the support that is needed going forwards.

Thank you!



The live music industry added £4.5 billion to the economy in 2019 and supported 210,000 jobs across the UK.


UK Music Festivals support 85,000 jobs, but with the entire summer cancelled, many are currently facing collapse.


Up to 50% of the UK live music industry’s workforce is facing unemployment, leading to a catastrophic loss of skills.
