PRS For Music Foundation

The PRS For Music Foundation has announced the latest round of its Flash Funding initiative, a scheme that offers support for artists with a one-week turnaround from application to decision. Said artists need to get their pitches in pretty damn quickly too. So cash in a flash, I guess. Look at me, writing snappy slogans for the PRS For Music Foundation for free. You’re welcome.

Anyway, applications were opened for the latest cash flash yesterday and artists now have until the end of Friday to apply for funding. With support from Wigwam Acoustics and the Musicians’ Union, this particular scheme will see four successful emerging acts provided with bespoke on-stage monitoring systems worth up to £10,000, plus advice and training on touring, promotional support and an additional £375 for touring costs.

Joseph Frankland, Senior Grants And Programmes Manager at the old Foundation said: “Following the huge demand for our first Flash Fund, we’re pleased to announce this new opportunity for artists and bands that helps to ensure exceptional live sound while offering financial support and crucial advice. We’re excited to partner with Wigwam Acoustic and the MU and look forward to receiving many great video applications before the weekend”.
