Do South Africans who create or present music content
benefit from streaming?
In 2020, Concerts SA researched live music streaming in South Africa and published the report “Digital Futures?”. This was a small-sample snapshot survey, conducted at the start of the disastrous Covid period.
Now, we’re revisiting this research, to find out how the landscape has changed and about the experience of platforms and individual musicians currently streaming music from South Africa. We need this information to help inform policy-making, support music-makers, and lobby for change where it’s needed
We’re sending out this survey, and hope – if this is you – you’ll assist us by completing and returning it. It’ll help us to map, accurately
- What earnings are musicians and other players making from streaming and producing online content?
- What interventions the music industry and government can do to assist artists in streaming their music?
- What music genres are being streamed in South Africa?
- How can we improve on the Digital Futures, research on streaming models published in July 2020?
We look forward to receiving your completed survey by 17:00 (GMT+2), Wednesday 23 February 2022.
