The project examines what kinds of online resources structure the labour market for live musicians. It identifies and maps different forms of online intermediaries in live music, considering their scope, functions, and their implications for musicians' working conditions. It also considers the limitations to "platformisation" in music and asks whether we could ever see "an Uber for live musicians".
