Music Supported Here has launched a poll that will help make informed predictions about how the music industry will progress in the next decade.
Named Ten in Ten, the poll is made up of ten questions for musicians, fans, managers, record labels, lawyers and people with other music-related roles to answer, and give their views on a variety of topics regarding the industry.
Those with a strong interest in matters related to the music industry are being urged to voice their opinions at the Ten in Ten website here.
The results of the poll will be revealed on Friday March 18th 2011 at The Roundhouse in London and will be discussed by a panel of key industry professionals.
“Although we can guess, none of us know what the next ten years will do to the music industry – that’s why Music Supported Here has launched Ten in Ten,” said Horace Trubridge, assistant general secretary of the Musician’s Union.
“The concept is simple. Ten questions will be answered by experts from the music industry – musicians, fans, managers, labels – to give an overall picture of what we think is going to happen.”
“Will illegal downloading become less of a problem? Will live work continue to generate more income than recorded? Will there be less new talent emerging? None of us can really be sure of what 2021 holds for the music industry, but we think that the opinions of thousands of people who live and breathe the music industry will produce some pretty accurate predictions.”
Feargal Sharkey, CEO of UK Music, added: “The poll asks some vital and complex questions. I look forward to seeing the results.”
