Applications to Horizons Launchpad Fund 2020 are now open!

Launchpad fund is a resource which helps talented artists or bands in Wales to further their music careers by providing them with vital access to finance.

Launchpad, as implied by the name, is for those starting out on their musical journey, at a crucial point in their development. It is to help support activities that will help artist or bands fulfil their potential. We’re looking for artists/bands that can demonstrate interest from audiences and those that work in the music industry (such as venues or critics) but need support to enable them to carry out an activity that will enable them to increase their reach.

We will be offering awards of up to £2,000 each.
