The aim of this research project is to share information on the practice of livestreaming concerts with musicians, with a view to enabling them to add livestreaming to their income ­generating activities.

The COVID ­related lockdowns have propelled many musicians into the livestreaming arena and the practice of livestreaming concerts continues to evolve rapidly. This report can only provide a snapshot of the current situation, as technological
innovation, potential changes in licensing, and the sharing of good practice will have an impact on how livestreaming is done in future.

The report serves in part as a guide to the practical matters of livestreaming, such as monetisation methods, platforms and technical and licensing aspects, and in part as an overview of current livestreaming practices. It also aims to outline the role that
livestreaming is playing during the COVID pandemic and its potential role in a post­-pandemic world.

There are five main themes that have emerged from the research project.
