Yorkshire Music Forum

Yorkshire Music Forum

Building on the previous work that we had carried out (often with other, like-minded organisations) in our role managing Music industry Yorkshire the Yorkshire region’s music industry development network, and moving into times where securing the kind of investment needed to cover a region the size of Yorkshire with consistent music industry support is almost impossible for a single organisation to achieve, the Yorkshire Music Forum (YMF) was created to carry out this function using a multi organisation approach.

The Yorkshire Music Forum (YMF) links the partner organisations, Higher Rhythm, Come Play With Me, Music:Leeds, DMF Digital and Arnold Brown Ltd based in North, South & West Yorkshire, in an association with a mission of providing support and development for music artists and the music industry across the Yorkshire region.

The YMF is a Talent Development Partner of The PRS Foundation and our Talent Development Programme for 2019 /20 will develop entry, emerging and developing level, Yorkshire based music artists, to advance their careers through bespoke, targeted support including recordings, releases, mentoring, advice sessions and industry events. The funding received from PRS Foundation for this project works alongside match funding from a wide range of other funders and sources including Arts Council England, Help Musicians UK, Leeds International Festival, Leeds City Council, and private income.
