First National Hungarian Music Industry Report

The report was compiled with joining data and knowledge from collective management agencies for composer, producer and performer royalties, and market leading companies Sziget (organizer of Sziget festival and many more festivals), WMMD music distribution company, market-leading Schubert Music Publishing and A38, Hungary’s leading music club, together with producer and audience survey data, tax authority data and other government sources.

The report was presented in the Music Hungary Conference in 2015 and became the prototype of further Hungarian and regional reports. It was commissioned by ProArt.


We want big data to work for small venues, independent labels, startups, great and undiscovered artists, and lead the way to create a truly inclusive European Music Observatory.
