Hull Music Charter

The Hull Music Charter started as local musicians gathered to counter the “myth of the free gig,” and was soon embraced by a number of the city’s venues, promoters and festivals. The Charter is based on musicians’ rights to dignity at work, a fair wage, just conditions of work, and a safe and healthy working environment. From these ideals they devised five objectives:

 

  1. Each artist is valued at the least to the rate of one hour of National Minimum Wage pre performance.
  2. Travel expenses are valued at the least to the rate of 20 miles of Approved Mileage Allowance Payment per act per performance.
  3. Refreshments to be provided free for all artists.
  4. Trading space to be provided in a prominent position for merchandise and promotion of all artists.
  5. Parking space to be provided free for all artists.

 

The website of the Hull Music Charter contains more information, or you can access the complete Charter PDF.
