Concerts SA offers travel grants to South African music professionals.

The Music Mobility Fund is a funding mechanism which offers opportunities for South African musicians to undertake live music-related projects. Music professionals are invited to apply for funding from a National Mobility Fund (for projects in South Africa, specifically KwaZulu-Natal, Western Cape and Gauteng) and a Regional Mobility Fund (for projects taking place in SADC countries, except South Africa).

The Fund is administered by Concerts SA, a joint South African/Norwegian project housed under the auspices of the Stakeholder Hub within the SAMRO Foundation. Concerts SA receives financial, administrative and technical support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, SAMRO Foundation and Rikskonsertene.

Designed to help musicians, music industry professionals and organisations build on already established domestic success and develop connections, markets and audiences for their work, the fund provides support towards travel and transportation; per diems; material costs (hiring of backline and sound equipment), accommodation and visas.

Applications deadline is September 14, 2014. The successful applicants will be announced on September 25, 2014.

Enquiries and applications should be submitted by email to, by fax to 086 5007028 or by post to SAMRO Foundation, 20 De Korte Street, 4th Floor SAMRO Place, Braamfontein, Johannesburg, 2017.For more information visit, follow on Twitter at or Like
