Supporting Grassroots Live Music

This funding is available from the Arts Council to those whose main function is to host and/or promote live music events in venues. Usually, this will be venues and promoters (or groups of venues and/or promoters).

We are particularly interested in supporting those venues and promoters who work in the grassroots part of this sector (ie those working with new, developing talent in small to mid-size venues).

We welcome applications from those who work with all types of musical types and genres. We are keen to support projects that bring the full spectrum of contemporary popular music genres to live audiences. This includes genres like:

  • electronic (including house, electronica, drum & bass, dubstep, experimental, etc)
  • hip-hop, grime, etc
  • indie and alternative
  • metal and punk
  • pop
  • rock (including blues, modern, post-rock etc)

We are also keen to support projects that develop diverse approaches to music programming, incorporating for example classical, jazz, folk, and/or world music alongside contemporary pop.
