Following the exciting official launch of Help Musicians Scotland, the charity is proud to announce that we’ll be offering a limited number of discounted bursaries to Wide Days for emerging artists and industry professionals, who otherwise would not be able to afford full price delegate passes. Launched in 2010, Wide Days is one of Scotland’s biggest music business conventions, with panellists from across the globe.
This bursary scheme marks one of the many ways HM Scotland plan to be #RootedInScotland, empowering musicians and those in the music industry.
The scheme will enable 40 attendees to gain a Friday Delegate Pass for 20 April (walk-up rate £110) at the reduced fee of £25. 10 places will also be allocated free of charge, to those who could not otherwise afford to attend.
Claire Gevaux, Director of Scotland said: “Wide Days is such a significant event in the national music calendar in Scotland and we are delighted once again to work in partnership with Born To Be Wide and offer these bursaries. We are committed to supporting Scottish musicians and industry professionals so they can have access to opportunities like this for valuable networking and enhancing their career prospects.”

Bursary places will be allocated on a first-come-first served basis, and all successful applicants will be notified by Friday 7 April at the latest, and must be available to attend the conference on Friday 20 April.
