New Musicians’ Union Live Advice

Musicians’ Union (MU) launches Fair Engagement Guide for Performing and Touring with Featured Artists.

Musicians’ Union (MU) launches Fair Engagement Guide for Performing and Touring with Featured Artists

This new document sets out the Union’s guidelines for musicians engaged by featured artists and/or their representatives.

These include:

  • The rates that apply for tours or one-off performances at venues, arenas, stadiums and festivals
  • The rates that apply to headline – as opposed to supporting – artists
  • The document offers advice on working as a live session musician rather than being a core band member

Featured artists for the purposes of the Guide are artists who have representation from management, major record labels or other third parties. Alternatively, they may be promoting a commercially released album.

By using these guidelines you can understand the value of your work in different contexts.

You can download the MU's guide to performing and touring with featured artists here.

The MU has also launched a useful set of Booking Details for Unsigned and Emerging Artists.
