This fund aims to encourage music businesses to identify areas to their establishment and operations that need improvement, but would not be possible without support from the fund, due to existing and current financial constraints. The purpose of the Music Capital Fund is for small and medium music businesses to apply for funding that would go towards improving and increasing their businesses commercial outlook and sustainability; and as a result, contribute to the development and growth of the music industry in Wales.
Applications from music businesses will need to demonstrate that their main function is to programme, record or be used for the rehearsal of original music, host and/or promote live music events of a commercial nature. The music being hosted, recorded, rehearsed or promoted from the business can be from the full spectrum of contemporary popular music genres (electronic; hip-hop; indie and alternative; metal and punk; pop; rock; etc.).
The fund will close to applications on Friday 17 December 2021 at 12.00 noon.
