Building Access Code




DEADLINE: 29/09/23

The Youth Music NextGen Fund offers young creatives grants of up to £2,500 to make their ideas happen.

The Youth Music NextGen Fund is for early-stage musicians and wider music adjacent creatives to invest up to £2,500 in their own projects and make their ideas happen. The fund is especially aimed at those whose lack of finance holds them back from pursuing their goals.

It’s open to 18–25-year-olds (and up to 30-year-olds who identify as d/Deaf or Disabled) who live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

They want to support the future of the music industries. Singers, Rappers, Songwriters, Producers, DJs, A&Rs, Managers and Agents, right through to roles that have yet to be defined.

Round 7 is now open and applications will close at 5pm on Friday 29 September 2023.

There is lots of advice and guidance on the Youth Music website. We thoroughly recommend reading it through. You can also have a look at the application form in advance of applying, too – always useful. There’s a breakdown of what you can cover with this funding, which will provide you with a starting point for putting together the budget section of the application.

If you need help or guidance with this application, the Youth Music team are available for phone chats.


Good luck!

Propeller Members: both Grace and Katie have mentor catch ups available in the lead up to this deadline if you need some encouragement and advice for this.
