Music Industry in Wales





In June 2019, the Culture, Welsh language and Communications Committee agreed to undertake an inquiry into the health of the Welsh live music sector.


Stakeholder events took place in Cardiff on 4 July 2019 and in Wrexham on 28 November 2019.




The Committee published its report: “Turn up the volume: Inquiry into the live music industry”  (PDF, 7. 3MB) on 18 December 2020. The report looked at the general health of the music industry in Wales, particularly in light of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.


The report was debated in Plenary on 3 February 2021.
