The value of the Norwegian music industry grew to a four-year high in 2015, with the live sector once again accounting for a majority of music revenue.
Total turnover increased 5% to 3.73 billion krone (kr) – roughly US$440 million – and live revenue 4%, to 1.93bn kr ($228.87m), on 2014, generated from ticket sales in Norway and artist fees from concerts outside Norway, reveals a new report by the Norwegian Arts Council (Kulturrådet). The figure is the highest since the council began compiling its Music in Numbers reports, in 2012.
Export income from concerts, however, fell 6% to 114 million kr ($13.7m), with a “fall in artist fees” blamed.
