Mental Health in the Music Industry

Working in promotions isn't easy. To discover more about the challenges and obstacles promoters face, we recently conducted a survey that focused on the effect this role has on health, relationships and happiness.

The response to this survey was astronomical and it's clear that the majority of promoters feel their mental health and wellbeing is dramatically affected by their work in the events industry.

It's now time to discuss the results as a whole to see what we - and the industry - can do to improve things for this often misunderstood and underrated profession.

We are conducting two panel sessions to further explore the issues, the first of which was at Queen of Hoxton in London, involving BAPAM, Help Musicians UK, promoters from Lock N Load and The Cause Tottenham, and Matt Cantor of the Freestylers (watch below).

The second is this evening in Manchester, with DJ Paulette, John Rostron from Association of Independent Promoters, Manchester Mind's Chiara Knott and Professor Tarani Chandola all speaking. You're invited to contribute, or listen, and help us start the discourse needed to make a positive change. The event is free and ticket details are below.

It's the loneliness and isolation that scares me.

Anxiety and stress are just part and parcel of the job - it's sad but true.
