Crew Nation | Relief Fund for Live Music Crews



The Crew Nation fund is here to help support live music crews who have been directly impacted as shows are put on pause due to COVID-19. Crew like you are essential to the fabric of live touring. You work behind the scenes to help artists and fans connect with the magic of live music, and Live Nation wants to ensure you are taken care of during this time. Applicants are eligible to receive a one-time grant of $1,000 USD.

A new application window will open the week of July 20th for anyone who was financially impacted by shows scheduled to take place in June 2020. 



You are eligible if you are a touring or venue crew member, both front of house and backstage staff, who makes 50% or more of your income from this field.

Please note that you are ineligible if you received or anticipate receiving pay from your employer from March 15, 2020 through April 30, 2020. You may be eligible in the next application period.


Application Review Process

The Application review process is expected to take up to 30 days, but we will do our best to work through applications as quickly as possible and thank you for your patience.

Applicants will be chosen by Music Forward Foundation, a 501c3 organization, who will be selecting recipients based on an objective determination of need. Grants will be distributed via PayPal in five to ten business days of award notification.

Applications are now open for anyone who has been financially impacted from concerts originally scheduled to take place in June 2020. The deadline to submit an application is August 16.
