Fuel The Music Funding For Unsigned Artists and Bands

In-Partnership-with-CamdenWe are delighted to announce that Camden Town Brewery, the renowned UK brewery which shares our passion for championing the independent arts scene throughout the UK, will be supporting us as we embark on our mission to provide funding for Unsigned Artists and Bands across the UK.

Join the journey with us and raise your glass to them for supporting the cause!

The Fuel The Music Funding For Unsigned Artists and Bands campaign works with venues across the UK, which facilitates approximately .20p poured from a pint (from selected drinks per venue) to Fuel The Music. This is then redistributed to support funding for the Unsigned Artists and Bands successful applicants.

Cheers to supporting independent talent!


Launch Of FTM Funding

We’re launching the funding programme for artists and bands on 27th October at the FTM Festival – get your tickets here. Our ambitious plans are to expand to numerous bars across the country, enabling us to support even more artists on a monthly basis.

In 2024 we will be announcing the dates of funding rounds including application closing dates and funding distribution. 

Applicants will first be verified, then judged based on their current activities (gig, marketing activities etc) and future aspirations.
