Digital Music Mobility Fund

                             Posted: Sep 29 2020

Applications now open for the 2020 Concerts SA Digital Mobility Fund. The deadline for submissions is 5:00pm on Friday 02 October 2020.


As a musician that is used to performing live, do you want to present a professional high quality live-streamed or delayed-broadcast performance to be viewed across the world? If you do, consider applying to Concerts SA to help subsidise your live streaming effort. 

In the past years, Concerts SA has supported thousands of musicians to tour the southern African region, offering support for transport, accommodation and artists fees, among other things. This year’s programme is different to past call-outs because of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund is administered by IKS Cultural Consulting on behalf of Concerts SA, a joint South African/Norwegian live music development project that receives financial, administrative and technical support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and  The SAMRO Foundation. 

To encourage ongoing ‘movement’ in the locked-down music sector, Concerts SA has opened a call for applications for the 2020 DIGITAL MUSIC MOBILITY FUND. This fund is focussed on subsidising artists in South Africa who intend to engage with live performances on streaming platforms. 

Concerts SA will consider proposals from music professionals within the following categories:

Live-streamed concerts without an audience (R15, 000 subsidy)

Concerts combining a live-streamed/delayed broadcast  with a live audience (R 25, 000 subsidy)

An independent adjudication panel will be responsible for selecting and approving the recipients of these subsidies.  Well thought-out, detailed proposals with realistic budgets stand the best chance of being selected.

Refer to Concerts SA’s research, Digital Futures – Live Streaming in South Africa for more information. 

The deadline for submissions is 5:00pm on Friday 02 October 2020. Submitting an application does not guarantee you a support subsidy.
