AmplifyWorld launches $500K artist fund to support musicians worldwide


Open to anyone making music, artists can apply for up grants of up to $50,000.

Fan engagement platform AmplifyWorld has announced its plan to distribute $500,000 – a reallocation of its marketing budget for the year – to musicians of all disciplines to help elevate their careers.

After a pilot run at Isle of Wight Festival, applications are open now to anyone making original music – bands, producers, and solo artists are welcome to apply for grants ranging from $1,000 to $50,000. Intended to cover music-related expenses, from marketing and touring to songwriting and production, recipients of the artist fund will also receive free access to AmplifyWorld’s advanced tools to support their careers.

Founded in Bristol by tech entrepreneur Irfon Watkins and Kasabian drummer Ian Matthews, AmplifyWorld is a service built for artists to share and promote their music, foster a community of fans, and access analytics on their tracks using innovative Web3 technology. 

To apply, artists must have an active Discord account and Spotify Artist profile. For more information and to enter, head to the AmplifyWorld website before 1 September.
