In our work as part of the Scottish Commercial Music Industry Taskforce (SCMIT) lobbying body, SMIA analysed results and compiled a report using data gathered by Taskforce members to provide evidence of need for six sub-sectors of the live music industry: artists, managers, agents, promoters, music festivals and production suppliers.

The report provides answers to four questions put to us by the Creative Industries department of the Scottish Government. We then used this report was used as a basis for our discussions with them. All data was aggregated and anonymised.
