Mundell Music Backstage Kinross is part of a national initiative launched by the MVT to prevent the permanent closure of music venues most at risk due to the crisis.
"Backstage Kinross is a special intimate, small capacity destination venue. It attracts people from all over the UK. I will not let it fade away. It means too much to so many"
If ever there was a time to support your local music venue, this is it. Help Mundell Music / Backstage Kinross to overcome this and survive 2020 and be ready to re start in April 2021.
Now is the time to stand up and say thanks for those good times. Whether it was getting close to tears at an intimate show with some of the legendary Artists that have graced our stage or even being lucky enough to catch some of the up and coming Bands that play for us. Loads of you tell us that we are your favourite music venue. Support us and we can continue to be exactly that!!

Mundell Music/Backstage have on THREE separate devastating occasions been unsuccessful in triggering a grant that was made available by the Scottish Government but administrated by a third party who deemed us ineligible. Therefore with live Music probably not restarting until April next year at the earliest, we are now asking if you could support our crowdfunding appeal to safeguard our survival so we can again be in a position to re open our incredibly popular live music venue.
Any donation from you would be most gratefully received and hopefully secure the future of Mundell Music/Backstage so that the popular wide ranges of music can be continued.
Backstage Kinross, The Stage.
We are fighting through this pandemic but we now need your help. There are too many people and local businesses who would certainly miss Mundell Music/Backstage if we were to close.
Thank you to all those who have so far bought some merchandise eg Tee Shirts that certainly has helped. We really appreciate your support.
Why are we crowdfunding?
Our music venue risks permanent closure because…. we have not received any money since March and we have monthly bills to pay. We need to ensure that we can survive through to April 2021
Your donations will be used to… pay wages and marketing and admin costs.
Paul Young with Los Pacaminos
We stage on average 120 gigs per year and have always ensured we have an eclectic mix of established and up and coming artists across all genres and fully intend to try and carry on for a number of years to come.

About Save Our Venues - The Red List
During the last 8 months, Music Venue Trust and Crowdfunder have worked together to prevent the closure of hundreds of grassroots music venues. With no end to the crisis in sight, we are now refocusing that work to spotlight those venues under most imminent threat of permanent closure. The #SaveOurVenues Red List highlights the grassroots music venues at most risk.
We’ve checked all the available funding, financial support, furlough schemes, business support for these venues, and what is on offer is not enough to prevent them being lost. These 32 venues are on the Critical List and need your help.
These grassroots venues play a crucial role in the development of British music, nurturing local talent, providing a platform for artists to build their careers and develop their music and their performance skills. These venues also play a vital role in the cultural and economic vibrancy of any village, town or city.
