Dear musicians, labels, managers, producers, promoters, publishers, lawyers accountants, organizers, freelancers, services, music organizations and institutions and everyone else in the sector.

The spread of COVID-19 worldwide is affecting us all. As measures have been taken by authorities in Ireland to address this pandemic a lot of you will lose income and opportunities in the coming weeks. At the moment there is no way for us to measure the impact that may have on those working in the music industry in Ireland

We would like to try to address that.

In an effort to assess potential damages and provide potential solutions to the situation, we will be collecting data over the coming weeks and beginning to aggregate information on cancelled music events, postponed performances, lost opportunities and loss of income in the sector.

We kindly ask you to complete this short survey and to share this link with others working in the sector. We ask that you give us information about actual losses on a weekly basis and fill in this form every week. 

As all are encouraged to complete this questionnaire including artists, technical and production team, managers etc please respond only in relation to you, particularly in relation to income losses

We have amended the week 2 survey with your feedback and it will remain on our website until Sunday April 5th 

In the meantime, please check out the news section on firstmusiccontact.com and follow FMC on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for useful links for supports during this time. 

Stay safe
