Resource Pack for All Musicians Affected By the Collapse of PledgeMusic

Music industry organisations have put together a new resource pack for all musicians affected by the collapse of PledgeMusic.

The pack, created by the MU, AIM, Help Musicians UK, FAC, MMF, Music Support, PRS Foundation and The Ivors Academy, signposts guidance and support for anyone affected.

Following the crowd-funding company’s closure, the MU wrote to the PledgeMusic Board to outline its members’ losses. We have also been working alongside music industry organisations to assess the extent of losses across the industry.

View the resource pack in pdf. 

The MU has since learned that a petition to wind up PledgeMusic was heard in court on Thursday 31 July. While it has always seemed likely that this would happen if PledgeMusic was unable to appoint administrators, there was no forewarning of the hearing.  

If you have any concerns relating to this issue in the meantime or you need advice, please contact your MU Regional Office. If you have been affected by the closure of PledgeMusic and you have not yet been in touch with us or filled out the survey, please get in touch as soon as possible.
