The Music Revenue Fund is a scheme to help music businesses in Wales to improve their commercial outlook and sustainability.

Up to £40,000 is available to applicants that will benefit from the support due to financial constraints. 

As part of our wider programme of support for the music industry, the focus of this round is to help music businesses with:

  • campaigns for new releases
  • promoting live music
  • sync and catalogue music
  • Welsh-language music.

Its ultimate aim is to contribute to the growth and development of our diverse music industry in Wales. 

For a full breakdown of eligibility, what we can and can’t fund, and the application process, read the full guidance notes. 


Applicants will need to demonstrate their main function is to work with musicians on the promotion, syncing or releasing of recorded music of a commercial nature. The music being hosted, recorded, rehearsed or promoted by the business can be from the full spectrum of contemporary popular music genres (electronic; hip-hop; indie and alternative; metal and punk; pop; rock; etc.).

Businesses that are predominantly hosting/promoting etc. classical or jazz music would not be eligible for this fund, as support for these genres exist elsewhere (primarily with Arts Council of Wales). If you’re unsure of your eligibility please contact us and we will be happy to discuss.

We cannot support applications from individual bands. In addition, only the owners responsible for running the business will be eligible to apply for this funding.
