The Association of Independent Music (AIM) are accepting further applications for access to their Covid-19 Crisis Fund, which is providing financial aid to freelancers and contractors in the music industry who have been hit hard professionally by the coronavirus pandemic.

Initially launched in April, AIM’s Crisis Fund has already helped nearly 200 people in the music industry — including tour managers, live crew, sound engineers, producers, agents, managers, promoters and publicists — who have lost out on work or had projects cancelled due to the lockdown.
