Gigs and Live Engagements

How we support live musicians

For musicians who perform live, the MU has specialist officials to advise you on getting gigs and concerts, promoting them and negotiating a fair deal.
We can also provide contract and legal advice at no extra cost.

In this section you will find advice on a range of different types of gigs from festivals to functions and from concerts to busking - as well as some tailored advice for those who are just starting out.
