Funding Opportunity

Touring and Live Support

You can apply for financial support of up to £5,000 towards the cost of touring where it is possible to show the clear impact it will have on your career development.

We understand the impact live performance and touring can have on a musician’s professional development, it's important for building your fanbase, increasing confidence and developing your performing skills, as well as offering you a chance to test new ideas. In the future, you may also find that touring could become an important part of your income generation.

We recognise that musicians work best when they maintain their creativity, health and careers simultaneously, so in addition to the financial support offered as part of this grant, you will receive business advice to help grow your skills, and guidance on healthy practice to support you in maintaining your wellbeing.

Awardees receive:
- up to £5,000 in financial support towards touring and live activities.

- one-to-one business advice sessions tailored to your needs and delivered via experienced music industry professionals, supported by Jonathan Robinson at ThinkMusic

- one-to-one health consultation with British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) professionals, covering all aspects of a musician’s health, including physical and mental health needs and specialist referrals where required


Is this for me?
This support is for professional UK musicians of all genres and disciplines aged 18+, with a focus on independent musicians who are controlling one or more aspects of their career (e.g. self-managing, self-releasing, self-producing). You can be a solo artist, composer, group member, songwriter, producer or a multidisciplinary artist.
