COVID-19 Resources for the Independent Music Community

The independent music sector is suffering because of the restrictions due to COVID-19 and we would like to offer our support to record labels and their trade associations worldwide by sharing a list of resources to help those impacted by record sales losses, cancellation of concerts, conferences and other activities, and loss of work in the music sector in general.

You can search by region, country, organisation and type of resource. If you are aware of any resources not listed here and you wish to contribute to this list, please contact us.
