image for Live Music Events Boost UK Economy

A major survey has revealed that live music events contribute almost £1 billion to the UK economy.

The survey was commissioned by UK Music, an organisation that represents the commercial aspects of the music industry in Britain.

While much of the revenue can be attributed to ticket sales and merchandise, over £3 million was raised from fines for drug possession, while £1.1 million was spent on employing industrial cleaners to clear up the mountains of rubbish that accumulated at the hundreds of outdoor venues across the country.

And U.K. outdoor suppliers made over £500,000 last year through sales of paper thin plastic tents that barely last a weekend.

So everyone's happy.
