VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR:
This digital-only publication has been designed to be used as both a reference guide for selective use by readers wanting to know about a particular funding source and an ordered, comprehensive guide to the six key sources of funding options available.
The chapters are broadly ordered to take account of the level of funding sought, the associated costs of borrowing, and the processes involved, from the relatively straightforward to the complex.Packed with tips and tricks from a range of providers and case studies from several artists and entrepreneurs – including End of the Road festival’s Sofia Hagberg, Red Grape Management and Carl Barât – its plain-speaking tone demystifies how funding works for musicians, entrepreneurs and micro-businesses, helping them discover sources of money they were previously unaware or unsure of.
With contributions from 40-plus artists, managers, music businesses and funding organisations, this guide also lists over 100 funding sources across the six main funding destinations. Its plain-speaking tone and accessible structure is designed to demystify how funding works for small creative businesses, enabling readers to discover sources of money they were previously unaware or unsure of.
Coming after several years of debating change across the live and recordings businesses, it is MusicTank’s first hands-on guide, aimed squarely at helping plug the funding gap that has long hampered the sector.
