Dedicated to the Business of Contemporary Live Music


The country’s only publication comprehensively devoted to the business people behind contemporary live music, LIVE UK is a market leader with readers that range from the lowliest pub landlord with an open mic night to stadium operators and politicians – anyone with a professional interest in the sector.

With live show revenue often outperforming income from recordings, more artistes are touring and ever-more venues, from clubs to arenas, want more of the action.

LIVE UK’s circulation of more than 2,700 key companies and individuals working at all levels of the country’s contemporary live music industry and associated sectors will have a pass-on readership of well over 7,000.

Distribution of the print publication reaches the operators of more than 1,000 venues, over 500 event promoters, the organisers of over 350 festivals, 500+ artiste managers and around 200 booking agents.

LIVE UK also reaches hundreds of other service providers ranging from audio, lighting, staging and transport companies to accountants, lawyers, record and media company executives, event sponsors, national and local government bodies, educational establishments, politicians and industry organisations.

LIVE UK is the only publication reaching such a comprehensive spread of companies and individuals involved in the business of contemporary live music.
