PRS Foundation: PPL Momentum Accelerator

Through the evaluation of our PPL Momentum Music Fund and evidence from over 4,000 applications per year, we identified talent pipeline gaps across the country. Many music creators show strong musical potential but are unable to capitalise upon this due to financial barriers, gaps in regional infrastructure, knowledge, advice, and access to industry platforms.

PPL Momentum Accelerator’s long term approach supports the development of these outstanding artists and bands outside of London who struggle to reach a crucial career tipping points, and with partners provide support for a number of future industry professionals such as managers, promoters, record labels, music publishers, booking agents, supporting sustainable regional scenes across the UK.

The fund can support projects by songwriters, artists, bands, and performers who are writing their own music based in Yorkshire and Liverpool City Region.

The aims of PPL Momentum Accelerator are:

  • To provide vital and timely financial support of up to £5k which will help talented artists and bands outside London to reach or get beyond early career tipping points
  • To enable artists and bands become more investment-ready in the future
  • To support regional industry infrastructure and access to team members so that artists and bands do not need to leave their region to progress in their careers
  • Provide access to industry-facing platforms (e.g. live platforms, radio and DSP access, industry interest)
  • Provide knowledge and advice to enable music creators to generate income, build audiences and sustain careers
  • Support a diverse range of music creators across the UK
  • Support sustainable regional scenes, with income generated staying in the area.
