Berlin survey: 1 in 3 musicians are giving upmain
A survey by the Landesmusikrat Berlin published today finds that, due to Covid, 29 percent of freelance musicians see no professional future in music, are planning career change or have already taken another job.
Just over one fifth, 22.1 percent, are optimistic about the future. Almost half, 46.6 percent, are on income support.
The survey is based on a small sample, just 485 Berlin musicians.
