Music artists from England

The Emerging Artists Fund 2015 is a partnership between PledgeMusic and Help Musicians UK.

PledgeMusic Logo We’re offering artists or bands the chance to receive funding from Help Musicians UK when you run a successful PledgeMusic campaign. The aim is to identify and support a diverse range of emerging artists who have the talent and the ‘DIY’ drive to build a long-term career.

WHO CAN APPLY?

To apply, you must be a UK-based emerging artist (individual or band) of any genre, without significant financial backing from a record label or publisher. You should be at, or approaching, a career tipping point, with a growing buzz around you, plenty of live experience and an engaged fan base. Your music should be distinctive, original and well crafted. You must be committed to building a long-term career.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

There will be three selection rounds in 2015 and eight artists will be chosen at each round. If you are selected and your PledgeMusic campaign runs successfully, Help Musicians UK will contribute significant additional funds to those raised through your campaign. We’ll let you know the amount available before you launch your campaign. Grants will usually be in the range £2, 000 - £5, 000.

We want this extra funding to make a crucial difference. We are after dedicated, hard-working and passionate artists. In your application we want you to tell us how you’d use the total funding to take your music and your career even further.

HOW TO APPLY

Applications for the Emerging Artists Fund 2015 are now closed. Find out more about the successful artists, or visit our Funding Wizard to explore other sources of funding.
