2020 Dallas Music Ecosystem Survey


This online survey has been created and will be analyzed by Sound Music Cities and Music Cities Together on behalf of Visit Dallas. The purpose of this particular survey - one that we've conducted in cities throughout the US - is to help the Dallas music community and the organizations that support it better identify and address the social determinants of the health of a given music scene: environment, education, equity, and economics.

We acknowledge we are in a pandemic that has been devastating to the Dallas music ecosystem. Throughout the survey, most of the questions will reference 2019 information. 

We are collecting your answers anonymously. We won't ask any personal identifiers so it cannot be connected to you. The data itself will remain private and confidential and individual responses will not be shared with any third parties.  We will share our analysis of the data with the community in September 2020.

To participate, we do ask that you:

1) are involved professionally in the Dallas music economy (such as working creatively in music, or working in any music-related product or service industry)
2) currently live within the Metroplex
3) answer questions as accurately and truthfully to the best of your ability

We also ask that you help us spread the word amongst your music community to take the survey before it closes on September 4th. The more respondents we have, the better the information will be.

Our test respondents completed this questionnaire in about 12 minutes. It works best on a desktop computer or tablet, but smartphones are also supported. Questions are mainly multiple-choice and quantitative, but we don't just want numbers. There will be open-ended questions as well and we hope you will share important thoughts in your own words. Your opinions and experiences matter.

It is recommended to complete the survey in one sitting, but you don’t have to rush – it won’t time out. If you have an interruption, you can simply come back later and pick up where you left off, as long as you use the same computer, tablet or smartphone, and browser. That said, please try to get all the way through to the final SUBMIT button before the survey officially closes on August 31.

Please contact us at if you have questions about this survey. Thank you in advance for sharing your experience and perspectives with us.

Ready? Let's go!
