PPL MOMENTUM + ACCELERATOR SHOWCASE

Music

PPL and PRS Foundation present the next generation of UK talent at Soho Music Month 2021

The PPL Momentum Music Fund offers grants of ยฃ5k-ยฃ15k for UK based artists/bands to break through to the next level of their careers. Activities eligible for support include recording, touring and marketing.

PPL Momentum Accelerator supports talented music creators with strong musical potential but are often unable to capitalise upon this due to financial barriers, gaps in regional infrastructure, knowledge, advice, and access to industry platforms.

In this special edition Soho Music Month showcase, PPL and PRS Foundation present a unique line up of amazing PPL Momentum and Momentum Accelerator supported artists, all hailing from outside London!
