This grant is for tours that will take place:APRIL 2019 – APRIL 2020 onlyApplications accepted now through MARCH 22, 2019 (midnight Eastern Time)
Only artists who have performed at a globalFEST's January Showcase/Festival are eligible to apply.
In recognition that world music tours are often inhibited by high start-up costs in the US, the gFTF will award small grants to offset budget shortfalls in upcoming tours that will bring the artists to at least one new market. The gFTF is only open by application to all artists who have performed at a January Flagship Showcase/Festival from 2004-2019. gFTF will award grants in the range of $1,000 to $4,000.
To qualify, the proposed tours must include a minimum of two public performances in two different markets. This can include concerts in theaters, concert halls, performing arts centers, clubs, and/or festivals. Please note: gFTF will support travel and touring costs only. gFTF cannot fund artist fees, however artist fees should be included in the tour budget.

All elements of the application must be submitted at one time, you cannot go back to the application once you have started.
