Why become a supporter?

The MU represents musicians – that much you know. But we also campaign on a number of issues to protect access to music for future generations. In order to successfully influence the government and other decision makers, we need the support of people like you who care about music.

What is the MU currently campaigning on?

Fair access to music education
It shouldn’t just be children with rich parents who are able to learn an instrument. We want fair access for every child.

Keeping music live
Protecting the live music venues that put on the gigs that you love.

Free movement across Europe for musicians
Most British bands tour and play festivals in Europe. We want to make sure that they continue to be able to do this cheaply and easily after Brexit. The same goes for the European bands who come over here to gig. 

Work not play
Who can sustain a career without being paid? Only the very rich. We battle against companies and promoters who ask musicians to play for free and fight for fair pay for all performers. 

Please join our supporter network and help to protect the music you love.

We promise not to jam your inbox, but we will send you a monthly update on our campaigning and what you can do to help. There will also be occasional competitions and giveaways.
