Wired4Music – opportunities and funding for people age 16-25​

Wired4Music is a Sound Connections hosted network that platforms high-quality music opportunities for Londoners age 16-25 and offers practical guidance, support and resources to individuals with music ambitions, ideas and projects. Everything we do is informed by our network members, from the music internships we share, to the events we promote, and projects and experiences we co-create. If you work with anyone age 16-25 looking for support to develop their career in music, click here > to find out how they can get involved. If you have any opportunities for people age 16-25, send them our way and we can promote them via the Wired4Music network.

Our flagship programme, Wired4Music Generate, opens three times a year and through bursaries and mentoring supports a wide range of ideas, from live music events, to workshops and choirs. Its aim is to bring members together for collaborative music opportunities. Some of the recently supported projects include music EP’s, dance and performance videos, zines and artist development event series. Applications reopen in July and you can read more about the application process here >.

Wired4Music social media platforms are the place for campaigning on music issues that matter, so we invite you to pass the message on to the young people you’re working with and get involved.

Becoming a member is easy: You start by signing up here > for free. Then find out what we have on offer by browsing through the opportunities page >  on our website, following us on Twitter > and Instagram > or dropping by for a FREE Drop In Session >, every last Thursday of the month, 6-8pm, at the Sound Connections office.

Whether you want to get more involved with Wired4Music, have a project idea, or need to know how to make the next step, feel free to contact us at any time. We hope to hear from you soon!
