The music industry is set to be given a £26 million windfall by the government to help creates placements for the jobless during the recession.

Under the plan being spearheaded by Culture secretary James Purnell, £50 million is being given to creative industries to help create new jobs.

According to Music Week the music industry will get over half the money with the initial aim of creating 200 placements in the 'festival' sector.

The money will come directly from the Department for Work and Pensions and jobs in other sectors of the music industry are planned for the future.
