At Music Fund we are 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 to put on music-related events.
Over the past few years, we have brought both 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.
Since its inception, one of Music Fund's key roles has been to arrange and publicise professional gigs to serve the local music scene. Working with Fence Records in 2012, we helped organise the Eye o' the Dug festival, featuring acclaimed artists Francois and the Atlas Mountains, King Creosote, KT Tunstall, James Yorkston, Django Django, and Hot Chip.
Recently, we have seen the 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.
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.
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.
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. Our weekly meetings are open to all.
