The Music Lotto launches - supporting independent artists & venues

A new fundraising lottery is launching in the UK and will support independent artists & grassroots venues.

The Music Lotto is a not-for-profit fundraising lottery that aims to support the independent music community at many levels, pledging at least 50% of each ticket sold towards independent musicians and grassroots venues, charities assisting the same & those bringing some joy to others with music.

Every month, a pool of fundraised capital will also be split between up to seven artists from England, Scotland and Wales and awarded as a grant – requiring a prior application.

The Music Lotto is open to anyone aged 18+ in England, Scotland and Wales to enter each week. Tickets go on sale from 15th February 2022.

The lottery will raise regular and substantial funding for those that need it most, with a chance of winning the £25,000 jackpot every single week. As well as the weekly jackpot, other prizes include £2,000, £250, £25 or three free tickets for the next draw.

The Music Lotto aims to make a difference to good causes centred around the independent music community – so that they can carry on their vital work. At the same time, it strives to support up-and-coming talented musicians, which is such an exciting and diverse space but often arduous and costly to navigate.

It’s managed and operated by Gatherwell, an External Lottery Management Company licensed by the Gambling Commission to run lotteries on behalf of good causes across the UK – Founded in 2013 with the mission of helping good causes by raising money within the community for the community. Current ‘Lottery Operator of the Year’, Gatherwell runs over 1500 bespoke lotteries for local authorities, schools, charities, unions and societies.
