Your Application

We are looking for artists/bands who have a clear and realistic plan to improve their professional careers and deliver business development and growth as a result of showcasing.

Applicant artists and bands should already be well established in both Scotland and the rest of the UK and have enjoyed some international success. You should also be able to demonstrate that you are ready to seize upon the opportunities that SXSW present. You will need to detail your track record, the things you have planned for the next 3-4 months and what you outline for SXSW.

Investments will be made on a per head basis at a pre-agreed rate of £800 per band member. An additional £800 is available (if required) to those artists who have a professional full time or part time Scottish-based manager, who is legally constituted (as a company or sole-trader) and has been established for at least one year. Evidence of this status may be requested prior to investment.

Please complete the application and budget with as much detail as possible, and itemise your budget and show your working in the notes, as per example.

The deadline for applications is: Friday 30 November at 5pm.

Please email your applications to

Any emails received after the deadline date will not be considered.
