Music Fund

Music Fund is dedicated to fostering the music scene in St Andrews, whether it be through organising gigs, providing funding for aspiring musicians, or working with other societies. Come jam with us!

At Music Fund we are dedicated to fostering the local music scene in St Andrews– hosting events, building musical connections, and supporting student musicians with equipment loans, gig/recording opportunities, and halls music rooms renovations.

Over the past few years, we have brought student, local, and national talent to the stage, whilst cultivating a diverse community of musicians. If you are a student with a passion for music, or you know of any music groups that would be willing to perform here in St Andrews, we would love to hear from you. 

Student music

We offer opportunities for student musicians to perform in St Andrews. We hold regular open mic nights, where artists can showcase their own music or play covers for an audience. We also host songwriting workshops, where you can bring out your creativity and meet like-minded musicians looking to form bands.

We provide a yearly opportunity to record in the Music Centre as part of our Sounds of St Andrews project. We also work to improve music rooms in student halls, and offer loan instruments for students to use for gigs. To find out more about our work, email us at [email protected].

Gigs

Since its inception, one of Music Fund's key roles has been to arrange and publicise professional gigs to serve the local music scene. We typically run a weekly live music event in the student union (2022/23 details coming soon), and also offer pop up events throughout the year. If you are a musician looking to perform, feel free to reach out!

In the past, our professional bookings have been likes of Boddika, Mungo's HiFi, Machines in Heaven, Messenger Sound System, Meursault, The Badwills, and many others. When considering who to book in for a gig, we aim to cater to all music tastes. Let us know what you're looking for; we exist to serve students!

Funding

An important part of our role is to facilitate venue and equipment hire, by providing funds for student musicians. We support passionate musicians in whatever way we can. If you are in need of equipment or would like to financially partner to run a gig, get in touch!

Check out our upcoming events on Facebook.

We are always looking for enthusiastic students who are eager to get involved, and help us make the St Andrews music scene as vibrant and inspiring as possible. We are looking for new members to join our committee in the 2022/23 academic year. Our weekly meetings are also open to all.

Feel free to get in touch for more information by emailing [email protected].
