The outcome of the research project will be a report for musicians, featuring best practice guidelines.

This survey is part of a research project by Middlesex University that investigates how musicians can generate income from livestreaming performances.

It is aimed at both performing musicians (with or without live streaming experience) and at regular live music event attendees (with or without experience of watching live streamed performances).

The outcome of the research project will be a report for musicians, featuring best practice guidelines. The research is funded by ESRC as part of UK Research and Innovation’s rapid response to COVID-19.
