To establish how many UK artists were affected by the demise of PledgeMusic and to what extent.

The following music industry organisations have come together to assess the damage caused by the collapse of PledgeMusic.  We have put together this survey in order to find out how many artists in the UK have lost money and what the impact has been for them.

UK Music, Music Managers Forum, Musicians' Union, Association of Independent Music, Help Musicians UK, PRS Foundation and International Showcase Fund partners including British Underground, PRS Members' Fund, Music Producers Guild, The Ivors Academy, Featured Artists Coalition, Music Support and the BPI.
 
Please note: the closing date of this survey is 12pm on 25th June 2019
Some of the questions are optional but please give us as much information as you can so we can build a full picture of the impact of PledgeMusic folding.
 
Thank you for taking the time to contribute.
