British Music Abroad

Our Funders

PRS for Music Foundation's British Music Abroad scheme, which enables British bands to travel to and perform at an international music showcase, would not be possible without the continued and generous funding from:

  • UK Trade and Investment
  • British Underground through Arts Council England
  • Musicians' Union

Support British Music Abroad


“We have always seen playing the US a bit of a pipe-dream. Like every band we would always imagine making an attempt to break into the US market but prohibitive costs have always meant that more local activities have always been prioritised when allocating budget. When we felt the
timing was right to make our first step, everything slotted into place very nicely. BMA funding was at the centre of this, along with all the support we were given whilst out there. Our trip far exceeded our expectations.”
Dutch Uncles

British Music Abroad is our most popular funding programme and the opportunities it offers has transformed the careers of many musicians who have been supported. We need more support to meet demand from musicians who could benefit from this scheme. Currently we are able to fund only a third of acts who come to us for help.
