The Bristol Music Foundation (BMF)


The Bristol Music Foundation (BMF) is run by music industry professionals in Bristol and supports the development of music businesses and musicians in Bristol and the South West of England. The BMF is dedicated to encouraging partnerships and networks in the region and connects regional music forums across the South West via the South West Music Forum to provide a joined-up approach to activity, to share ideas and knowledge, and to raise the profitability and international profile of the music industry in the South West.

The BMF represents the music sector in the South West on local and regional cultural consortiums, including with the media and design sectors, and on cultural strategy and planning groups including the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad Task & Finish Group and National Skills Academies forum.

The BMF connects with local, national and international music industry and government agencies, organisations, festivals and events to improve opportunities for musicians and music businesses across the South West.
