If working in the music business is unhealthy, how can we change it?


For several years already, I’m writing about the mental challenges that musicians have to face. When I started 6 years ago, no one else was talking about it.

But musicians are not the only ones in the music business who suffer, it seems. Ticket outlet Skiddle did research with 520 promoters, venue operators and event organizers, 82 percent of people working in this business are suffering with continuous levels of stress. 65% said they frequently felt an ‘intense and unmanageable’ level of pressure. Nearly four in 10 (38%) said working in promotions had affected their relationships with their partner or spouse.

How can we make the music business a mental healthier environment for everyone? What do you think? All idea’s are welcome!
