Introducing: The Live Fund



Music Crowd

The Live Fund has been formed to support our artists with the financial constraints that come with performing live, enabling them to grow their career in the live sector (nationally and internationally).

The Live Fund is a grant of up to £500, available to Sentric artists across all genres, who are going on nationwide tours – including festivals and events – either as a headliner or supporting artist.
