Funding to Support Young Creatives to Launch a Project, Idea or Business (UK)

Youth Music, a national charity funded by the National Lottery,  has announced that round 7 of the NextGen Fund has opened for applications.

The fund supports emerging musicians and behind the scenes creatives aged 18-25 (and under-30s who identify as d/Deaf or Disabled) from across the UK to launch a creative project, idea or business.

Grants of up to £2,500 could help people including singers, songwriters, producers, djs, managers and agents who do not have the financial means to invest in themselves, to start a record label, launch a single, or provide a platform that supports underrepresented voices.

Funding can also cover costs linked to career development, audience development or marketing, equipment and software, and business development.

The closing date for Round 9 applications is the 28th June 2024.
