Supporting Grassroots Live Music

Funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport as part of £8.5m boost to the music industry announced in June 2023 in the UK Government’s Creative Industries Sector Vision, £4 million has been allocated specifically to support rehearsal and recording studios, promoters, festivals, and venues for live and electronic music performance such as grassroots music venues and club sector organisations to apply for support for projects that help them bring live and electronic music to the public and and support the development of talent.

You can apply for between £1,000 and £40,000, for projects up to three years in length. If you need to apply for more than £40,000, you can still apply to the main Project Grants programme for activity that delivers grassroots music activity.
