We are happy to announce the musicians and bands that could be supported in the second half of 2022 through Musicboard’s Support Tour Funding.
The three-member expert jury received 29 formally valid applications with a total volume of 95.379,98 euros for the Support Tour Funding programme in the second half of 2022. 12 applications were recommended for funding with a total funding amount of 31.920,00 euros.
Musicboard’s Support Tour Funding programme supports up-and-coming Berlin pop musicians in their plans to go on national or international tour with a more established act. To be on tour with a headlining act for a longer period, generally exceeds the financial budget of younger bands. This is where the Support Tour Funding comes in, enabling the support act to expand its audience and gain live experiences. The funding is awarded as a purpose-specific scholarship.
In addition to meeting the formal criteria, the jury also places importance to taking into account the diversity of Berlin’s musical landscape and ensuring gender-equitable funding. The jury consists of Anna Groß (Artist and event manager, label operator SPRINGSTOFF GmbH), Sebastian Hoffmann (Programme Director and organiser, consultant touring artists) and Katja Lucker (Managing Director Musicboard Berlin GmbH).
