Funding for Artists & Bands (England)

PRS for Music Foundation and Arts Council England have announced that the next application deadline for the Momentum Music Fund is the 26th January 2015. Launched in 2013 by PRS for Music Foundation, with £500,000 of investment from Arts Council England, Momentum grants were awarded to 68 artists in the two-year pilot scheme. The PRS for Music Foundation are pleased to announce an extension and expansion of the programme, with additional funding available to support a further 50-60 artists in 2015-16. Applications can be submitted by the artists themselves or those who are working on their behalf, e.g. a manager, an independent label or publisher. Priority will be given to those that haven’t been funded by PRS for Music Foundation in the previous 12 months. The funding cannot support:

  • The purchase of a van or car
  • International touring
  • Shortfall/deficit funding not linked to development of a specific artist; etc.
