We are #BehindEveryMusician

We stand up for employed and self-employed musicians working in every area of the UK music industry, including music education.

We work to maximise the employment and overall income of musicians as well as protecting and improving working conditions. We also offer advice, support and legal assistance based on every individual member’s needs.

We lobby government at all levels and campaign on a national and international scale on issues of relevance to our members.

We actively oppose all forms of harassment, prejudice and unfair discrimination whether on the grounds of sex, race, ethnic or national origin, religion, colour, class, caring responsibilities, marital status, sexuality, disability, age, or other status or personal characteristic.

Need to talk to us?

The MU has a network of experienced teams available to help musicians in all areas of the industry.

Coming out of the pandemic and post-Brexit, the Musicians’ Union is more relevant to musicians than ever. We’re working hard to make the music industry a fairer, more inclusive place. We are behind every musician, whatever their background, wherever they are based, and however they make music.
