Calling all emerging artists, bands and musicians – PRS for Music Foundation has launched its latest Flash Funding initiative, this time focused on live performance.

Following its popular vinyl pressing scheme last year, the Foundation’s latest Flash Funding opportunity offers four upcoming artists and bands access to bespoke monitoring packages to aid their live performance.

The packages are worth up to £10,000 and can include in-ear monitoring, microphones, control systems and more tailored tech, plus advice and training on touring, promotional support and an additional £375 for tour costs.

The fund is run in association with Wigwam Acoustics and Musicians’ Union from today (Wednesday 6 April) until midnight on Friday (8 April).

To apply, head over to http://www.prsformusicfoundation.com/flashfunding and submit two examples of your music and a three minute video answering basic questions about your upcoming live dates.

Further details and information on eligibility are also available. The deadline for submissions is Friday 8 April at midnight.

Once the deadline has closed, an expert industry panel will pick the four artists from a shortlist applicants and the successful grantees will be publicly announced on Monday 18 April.

PRS for Music Foundation’s innovative Flash Funding initiative offers a range of targeted support with a one-week turnaround from application to decision.

Joe Frankland, senior grants and programmes manager at the 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 Musicians’ Union and look forward to receiving many great video applications before the weekend.’
