With the Survey, Live DMA presents the first Europe-wide quantitative study on live music venues and clubs. This project not only helps in having a better understanding in the European venues’ legal status, type of activities or number of workforce but also helps our members in collecting their own data at their regional or national level, the same way our members help us collect data for the European level.
Indeed, it is important that this data is made for the live music sector and by live music actors in order to ensure a relevant analysis of the numbers collected.
This article presents the various regional studies that our members have released, often in their own national languages. The studies only focus on the venues, clubs and festivals (economic data, activities, workforce…). Audience research is excluded from the list.

For me, Live DMA is a fantastic place to share and gain knowledge, exchange ideas and get inspiration from fellow European colleagues. We have common challenges that we together are in a better position so solve.
Anders Tangen - (Oslo )
I strongly believe that we must defend a European spirit, especially in these moments in which some evil forces are attacking a philosophy of life in which music, its enjoyment and its diffusion are a magnificent tool to defend cultural diversity and freedom of expression.
Armando Ruah - (Madrid )
It’s important that music can be recognized as a tool of “being together” at first. Live DMA has the duties not to forget social and cultural aspects of the music sector.
David Dehard - (Brussels )
Live DMA’s vision is that decision makers, the whole scene and the broad public see the role that clubs and festivals play in the whole ecosystem.
