At the conclusion of the pilot project, a report will include aggregate economic modelling and qualitative analysis that will describe the current state of play for the venue-based live music industries in each city. The tool used for data collection and analysis will be included in the report to enable current and future stakeholders to undertake similar research in their own locality.
