The UK music industry unites to support those impacted by the collapse of PledgeMusic

Music Support has joined forces with music trade organisations and charities to support UK music artists and businesses impacted by the collapse of PledgeMusic.

We are deeply disappointed that PledgeMusic has announced its bankruptcy leaving artists and fans out of pocket and with little communication or advice on how to deal with campaign disruption.

The failure of PledgeMusic to appropriately ring-fence artist and fan money has the potential to damage artists’ careers and their relationships with fans and fellow creators if they can’t deliver on stalled campaigns.

Today, an impact assessment survey has been launched to help those financially affected. The information provided by this survey will help the industry better understand the fallout from Pledge’s collapse and help ensure artists and businesses are given the support needed.

If you have been affected by PledgeMusic’s closure, the form below will be available until 12pm on Tuesday, June 25th.

If you need extra guidance or support please do not hesitate to reach out and contact some of the following organisations.

The Association of Independent Music has some general guidance for those affected by the closure of PledgeMusic here.
 
If you are in financial crisis and in need of immediate support (including debt support), please contact Help Musicians UK.

Our freephone helpline (0800 030 6789) is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - providing support for individuals in any area of the UK music industry affected by mental health issues, addiction or emotional and behavioural disorders.
