In partnership with Help Musicians Scotland (HMS) we offer a bursary for emerging artists and industry professionals to attend the Thursday and Friday activities + the Saturday Festival Takeover.

There are 20 heavily-subsidised passes for £25 (walk up rate £130) and 20 free places which we allocate to those who face additional financial challenges.

To apply, check the terms and conditions below to make sure you are eligible and then complete the form.

  • You are able to attend a welcome workshop hosted by HMS at Wide Days from 09.00 on Friday 12 April.

  • You accept your bursary place within seven days of your offer, otherwise the space may be reallocated.

  • If you are not able to attend you will notify Wide Days and HMS as soon as possible, so the Bursary can be reallocated.

  • The bursary ticket cannot be upgraded to include the Thursday evening coach tour or the daytime activities on Saturday.

  • If possible, you will take part in two post-event surveys to help HMS and Wide Days continue offering the bursary in future.

  • Please note, this bursary is NOT for those in full time education. Please see 'Student Convention Pass' in the Delegate Passes section.
