Call for Concepts: Label Funding 2024

In 2024, Musicboard Berlin awards funding to Berlin labels three times a year. Applications for the first funding round can be submitted via the online application tool by 15 February 2024.

With three application deadlines for the Label Funding programme in 2024, Musicboard Berlin again grants indirect artist funding to label operators who are planning specific steps to establish up-and-coming pop artists based in Berlin. The financial support for some components of promotion and marketing helps labels operate with more flexibility, and the addition of the labels’ expertise works to the artists’ benefit.

In 2024, the Label Funding programme will be awarded three times a year with deadlines on February 15, May 15, and August 15. Applications for first funding round can be submitted from now on and by 15 February 2024 at 6:00 p.m.


Funding is awarded through Musicboard Berlin GmbH upon recommendation of an independent jury of Berlin-based pop experts. Starting immediately, Beate Dietrich (Member Services at VUT, project manager at MEWEM) and Eva Rölen (booking agent, artist and event manager) are joining the jury for the Label Funding programme. They will advise on applications together with Ji-Hun Kim (editor, journalist, music producer) and Thien Nguyen (label owner, DJ, producer). Musicboard would like to thank Katja Lucker and Pamela Owusu-Brenyah, who have stepped down from the jury.
