Ontario Creates - Ontario Music Fund (OMF)
10/03/19 5:00 PM - for Music Promoters/Presenters and Booking Agents.
Grants of up to $25,000 to Ontario music promoters, presenters, and booking agents to stimulate entrepreneurship and develop the local music industry. Funding is intended to support music-based businesses and artist entrepreneurs who have the potential to develop professionally if they have access to skills development opportunities, business mentoring, and working capital to expand their recording, touring or A&R (artist and repertoire) capacity.
The objectives of the Music Futures stream are to:
- Increase the business capacity of small music companies with strong potential;
- Support Ontario's musical diversity, particularly with respect to music from culturally diverse, Indigenous, and Franco-Ontarian communities; and
- Support and strengthen Ontario's production of music from under-represented but high-potential genres.
Music Promoters/Presenters are primarily engaged in the development and delivery of live music events, music festivals, concerts and tours in more than one venue in Ontario, for which they have primary responsibility for music programming. They take the primary risk of programming, promoting, and producing live music performances. They contract with musical artists and owners of performance venues, arrange for marketing, promotion and ticketing, and stage the events, either supervising directly or through subcontractors.
Booking Agents are companies and businesses whose primary business activity is representing and promoting musical acts and artists, under a contractual agreement, for the purpose of engaging and negotiating live performance bookings for tours, concerts, and festivals.
