All of the leading players in the corporate live music industry have now published financial details for the first half of 2015. An assessment of how the sector has performed suggests the live music industry could well be heading for a record year.


  • Combined earnings for the seven featured companies showed healthy growth overall with just Brazilian promoter Time For Fun suffering a year-on-year decline in revenue.
  • Live Nation is by far the biggest of the seven events companies detailed but the strongest revenue gains were registered by the most recently listed promoter SFX Entertainment.
