Recent turmoil in the Edinburgh music scene following the closure of the Picturehouse as well as the local council’s Live Music Matters forum, a new research project is being conducted by the Live Music Exchange and the University of Edinburgh.

Described as “a chance for Edinburgh’s music scene to pull together to illustrate its value to the city,” the intention is to document live music of any kind in Edinburgh over the weekend of 5th/6th June. The survey’s organisers have asked that dedicated music venues, pub, cafés or any other kind of music promotion get in touch. The survey also extends to anyone playing or even attending a gig of any kind.

The census can be completed here with more info at the Live Music Exchange site.
