northern line round 6

About northern line

northern line is an open application scheme to support northern jazz musicians to tour across the North. The scheme aims to strengthen artists’ offer, enabling them to engage new and existing promoters and develop jazz audiences across the sector.
We’re now recruiting our 6th round of northern line artists. Since 2013 Jazz North’s northern line has supported 58 ambassador artists, developed a network of 150 promoters, festivals and arts organisations and partnered on over 500 subsidised performances across the north and beyond.

How it works

Performances by northern line artists are subsidised by a set amount per musician, which reduces the financial risk to promoters and encourages them to book high-quality northern artists.
The Round 6 touring period will be 1 September 2018 to 31 December 2019.

The application portal for round 6 has now closed.
Artists will be notified about their application by 16th February 2018.
