Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee of the National Assembly for Wales is looking at issues affecting the music industry in Wales.  We are starting by looking at live music in Wales and we would like to hear from you.

Please tell us about:

  • How do local authority decisions such as business rates, licensing and planning decisions impact upon live music venues?
  • How does Welsh Government policy (including the distribution of funding by the Arts Council) impact on the health of live music?
  • the availability of suitable venues for live music across the country;
  • the opportunities for talent development, from grassroots to larger venues;
  • the viability of the traditional Welsh music scene, and any particular issues in this area;
  • the viability of the festival sector, and any particular issues in this area.

Please tell us about any other issues which affect live music and the places where it can be enjoyed.


The deadline for responses is 21 June 2019. Please send your views to:
