Youth Music funding for Supersonic Festival



We are thrilled to announce that this year’s Supersonic Festival is backed by Youth Music. Thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we have been awarded Incubator Funding which will go towards creating a new role for an emerging music industry professional, aged under 25 from an underrepresented background.


About Youth Music

Youth Music believe that every young person should have the chance to change their life through music. Yes their research shows that many can’t because of who they are, where they’re from or what they’re going through.

Their insights, influence and investment in grassroots organisations and to young people themselves means that more 0-25-year-olds can make, learn and earn in music.

Youth Music is a national charity funded thanks to the National Lottery via Arts Council England, players of People’s Postcode Lottery and support from partners, fundraisers and donors.

Thanks to this grant we’ll be able to give someone the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of working in the music industry, offer training with industry experts, a professional mentor, and the opportunity to devise and produce a creative project, inspired by their work with Supersonic Festival.
