Ditto Music Surveys Indie Artists on Releasing Vinyl

Global music distribution company Ditto Music has discovered that only 12.8% of independent musicians have released their music on vinyl, despite UK vinyl sales reaching their highest level since 1990.

Ditto’s survey of 1,000 independent artists found that the main reason for artists not releasing vinyl was that production costs were too high (54.4%). Other factors included fan bases not being interested in vinyl products (28.7%) and production times being too long (9.9%).

Key results of the survey can be seen in the graph below:
