Applications for Round 22 of the Music Export Growth Scheme (MEGS) have now opened, and will close at 11:59 pm on 4 December 2023. Due to Department for Business and Trading (DBT) funding rules, any funding awarded in this round must be claimed by 31 March 2024. No money will be paid out after that date.
MEGS exists to boost British music exports by supporting small to medium sized music companies as they build on the commercial potential and profile of their artists in overseas markets. This latest round of the Scheme run by the record labels’ association, the BPI, is funded through the DBT and the Department for Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS).

As with previous rounds applications we will be allowing non-touring applications as well as hybrid applications, alongside traditional touring applications. If you are unsure of what to include in your application, please contact us to discuss. Eligibility, criteria and more details on the process are available on the BPI website here.
