LIVE FONDS // International Touring Fund

Need help financing concerts abroad? No problem! For concerts and tours taking place outside of Germany, you can apply for reimbursement of up to 50% of your travel costs (max. €750). Costs for transportation, accommodation, or international visa acquisition are all eligible for reimbursement. Simply submit an application to the LIVE FONDS International Touring Fund after your tour and get a portion of the expenses back!

Concerts occurring within: December 1, 2023 – May 31, 2024
Application Deadline: June 30, 2024

Terms and Conditions:

  • The relevant performances must take place abroad or, in the case of support tours, predominantly abroad. The respective country must include a primary target audience for the band.
    The applicants have written proof (e.g. performance agreement, contract) from the respective organizers. This must include the place, date and, if possible, the details of the performance. A payment / fee must be demonstrably recognizable – concerts without a fee are considered on a case-by-case basis!
  • Funding must be utilized strictly for travel expenses when performing abroad and may only include transportation, accommodation and visa costs. At least 50% of the costs must be covered yourself. RockCity membership is not required.
  • Applicants may only apply for reimbursement for up to a maximum of 5 days abroad.

  • Important: No other federal or state funding, such as the Goethe Institute, Initiative Musik or cultural authorities, may be accepted at the same time as RockCity funding.


Funding decisions are made by the board of RockCity Hamburg e.V. or a committee commissioned by it. The decision of the Board of Directors is final. The legal process is excluded. Funding is only awarded on a case-by-case basis. It is a one-time reimbursement and does not guarantee any entitlement to further funding and/or any increase in the scope of funding. The applicant is responsible for taxing the funding.
