News: 8th November 2017 by Louise Dodgson under Finance, Law & Music Business, Music Training & Careers
Since 2013 the Momentum Music fund has supported over 200 artists, over 90 new albums and more than 100 UK tours totaling over 650 UK live dates. The 2016 impact report analysing the first 3 years of the fund revealed that every £1 invested by Momentum has generated £7.46 for the UK music industry.
Managed by PRS Foundation, the Momentum Music fund awards grants of £5,000-£15,000 using public funding from Arts Council England and support from PPL. Spotify, the official digital partner on the fund, contributes additional funding and a reward package containing exciting promotional opportunities and a close working relationship between Momentum artists and the Spotify team.
