applications for the touring fund are now closed!

In recognition that world music tours are often inhibited by high start-up costs in the US, the gFTF awards grants in the range of $1,000 - $4,000 to offset budget shortfalls for upcoming tours that bring gF artists to at least one new market (city). These grants provide crucial funding directly to gF artists to perform in new markets and to develop new audiences in the United States. This additional support can be critical to their ongoing success following their participation at gF.
