New BC Music Fund programs

Creative BC, with industry consultation and feedback,  has developed six new funding programs to support all aspects of BC’s Music Industry, including a live music program.

This Live Music Program supports BC-based live music events, creating engagement opportunities for audiences and artists. Funding also supports business development initiatives for live events, such as adding a new stage, developing new revenue streams, marketing initiatives, infrastructure improvements, professional development and business travel. Applicants for this program are BC-based festivals, venues, presenters and event producers.

The remaining 5 programs are: Research, Industry Initiatives, Careers of BC Artists, Music Company Development, and Innovation. This suite of programs will support artists, music companies, industry associations, innovators, venues, event producers, and sector collaborations.

Programs will launch between December and March, with full instructions on how to apply. For more information visit Creative BC.
