Youtube is now accepting applications from independent artists for the Foundry Class of 2022.
Foundry is YouTube Music’s global artist development program. Foundry serves the independent music community, giving artists access to resources to help them thrive on YouTube and build careers on their terms.
If you’re an independent artist looking to grow your voice on YouTube, apply for the program today!
Independent artists selected for Foundry receive:
you are a developing independent artist who will be distributing official music to YouTube during the Foundry Class of 2022 term (July 2022 – December 2022)
Artists can be considered independent when they drive their careers forward on their behalf and work with indie labels and distribution partners.
Artists signed directly to major labels are not eligible for Foundry.
Youtube hopes to inform artists selected for the Class of 2022 by no later than July. Applicants will get a notification if the application has been successful via email. If you are not selected for funding, don’t fret! This is an ongoing program, so there will be more opportunities to apply to participate in the program in years to come.
