IMPORTANT 2016-17 Program Update
To transition the Music Futures deadline for spring to fall (for Promoters/Presenters and Booking Agents only), applicants seeking funding for annual festivals, music series or events that exceed a 12-month window may choose to apply for:a) 2016 activities retroactively
c) A combination of 2016 & 2017 events, presented as two separate activities (with corresponding budgets).
NOTE: For the 2016-17 program year only, applicants applying for two consecutive years of support (option c) may apply for up to $75,000 (rather than the usual Music Futures program cap $50,000) provided that the intent to do so is registered with the OMDC at least 2 weeks in advance of the application deadline. Full eligibility requirements and details can be found in the Music Futures Guidelines.
