UK music industry unites to support artists and businesses impacted by the collapse of PledgeMusic

DATE: 5th June
A group of music trade organisations and charities have today united in a bid to support UK artists and businesses impacted by the collapse of PledgeMusic - launching an impact assessment survey to understand all those financially affected.

Closing at 12pm on Tuesday 25th June, the survey, hosted by the Musicians' Union (MU), can be accessed here and should be completed by individuals and businesses alike.

The organisations have published the following joint statement:

"As organisations who want to see the music industry thrive, we are deeply disappointed that PledgeMusic has announced its bankruptcy leaving artists and fans out of pocket and with little communication or advice on how to deal with campaign disruption.

“The failure of PledgeMusic to appropriately ring-fence artist and fan money has the potential to damage artists’ careers and their relationships with fans and fellow creators if they can’t deliver on stalled campaigns.

“Individually, each of our organisations have been working hard to support our members during this difficult time. However, in order to consider collective action we have launched an industry-wide survey to assess the impact of the PledgeMusic closure.”
