Available Funds For Musicians

2020 has been a difficult year for the whole entertainment industry, and the fact concerts and other live events have been shut down by the pandemic has made these times particularly hard for musicians. The precarious situation makes the achievements of this year more impressive than ever, but it also creates more difficult starting conditions for 2021. In order to counter all this situation, we share here some funds and initiatives that can help you pay for education, equipment, projects and more, in order to ensure the viability of your music career in the upcoming months.
