The music trade is cutthroat and unforgiving. It’s little shock current survey reveals that over 80% of music trade staff reported some type of main psychological well being downside.
Skiddle, a UK ticketing and occasion firm, have been those behind the survey that primarily focuses on music promoters. Jimmy Coultas, who works for Skiddle, defined how the survey got here to be:
The survey revealed:
- Over 65% of promoters reported feeling ‘intense and unmanageable ranges’ of stress
- 47% mentioned their work within the trade usually results in feeling anxious and unhappy

The largest supply of issues is lack of monetary safety (45%). Second is lack of help (42%), adopted by the impact it has on relationships (25%). Skiddle hosted a two-day panel to handle these findings in addition to determine methods to repair this.
During the panel, they mentioned the harms of social media and highlighted how it’s needed for music promoters but in addition positively a contributing issue to the above statistics. Another subject was the rivalry and aggressive nature of the enterprise. They additionally talked about not figuring out who to belief.
Professor Tarani Chandola of the University of Manchester Psychology Department partook within the panel and made an necessary level by saying that the trade itself wants to alter. Making individuals conscious of those issues is step one in starting to repair them.
It is our hope that the outcomes of this survey can be a method of pushing the trade to discover a option to higher the standard of life.
