In the third round, the ReBuild fund will offer grants of up to £3,000. This round is open to new applicants as well as those who have received Rebuild support in a previous round if they meet this basic criteria.
Successful managers will have to meet four basic criteria to apply:
As detailed in the MMF’s 2019 report, Managing Expectations, music managers invest extensively in the long-term career development of their artist, songwriter and producer clients, predominantly on commission-based terms. For more than 80% of music managers surveyed for the report, live music represented their most reliable and important revenue stream.
Compounding this situation, a significant proportion of the MMF’s 900-strong membership do not qualify for existing Covid-19 support packages and are unable to self-furlough due to their responsibilities to their clients.
The ReBuild fund is administered by Help Musicians and has been made possible by a generous donation from PPL, with additional contributions a range of individuals and businesses including Joyce Smyth (Glastry), Merck Mercuriadis (Hipgnosis Songs Fund), Adam Tudhope (Everybody’s), Paul Loasby (One Fifteen Management) and Stuart Camp (Grumpy Old Management).
