Concerts SA has opened a call for applications to the 2021 DIGITAL MUSIC MOBILITY FUND. This fund is focused on artists being subsidized for performance and streaming, thereby creating work for themselves. This year’s programme is different to past Mobility Fund call-outs, and is the second Digital Mobility Fund due mainly to challenges placed upon the live music scene by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are not offering support for national and regional travel. Instead, we would like to encourage our subsidy to be used for artist-centered performances. Please note the following before commencing with your proposal:

  • APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY 5PM THURSDAY 22 APRIL 2021
  •  
  • CONCERT STREAMS NEED TO HAPPEN BETWEEN 15 MAY AND 15 JUNE 2021
  •  
  • Applicants are required to create a band/artist profile on the Music In Africa website (www.musicinafrica.net). A Music In Africa profile allows music professionals to add a concise professional bio, pictures, videos, music and other career aspects. The URL link is required in the application form below.
  •  
  • Concerts SA may not cover the full costs of the production, therefore plans or evidence of income from ticket sales, partnerships, and any other additional support improve chances of success.
  •  
  • Artists must ensure the careful ownership and management of their music rights in their dealings with streaming platforms for this call out, and in terms of future self management.
  •  
  • Concerts SA will not take any responsibility for the health and safety of the musicians, crew, and audiences at the venues. Health & safety protocols in accordance with government directives for the events are essential.
  •  
  • In line with the above criteria and the need for social distancing, Concerts SA cannot consider applications for large-scale live events.
  •  
  • An independent adjudication panel will be responsible for selecting and approving the recipients of these subsidies.
  •  
  • Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee you a support subsidy.
