Live Connections: PRS funds for live electronic music

The foundation of the royalty collecting society offers up funds for live electronic music...

PRS Foundation, the new music promotion and funding wing of the the Performing Rights Society (a royalty collection society acting on behalf of UK songwriters, composers and music publishers) has announced that funds are available to be distributed amongst artists who perform live electronic music. Live Connections is a scheme which offers funds towards one-off live performances of electronic music, looking for proposals "that demonstrate innovation in the live presentation of the music: for instance, in the use of unusual venues, a strong visual presentation or new methods of performing live." Applicants should be UK based acts (individuals or groups) who create their own music and are looking to perform projects during 2010. Click here for more information.
