We are calling out to all young musicians ages 10 – 20 who would like to be featured in this festival.
The day will be broadcast across a number of online platforms and media outlets, with an audience of thousands of people (pretty exciting stuff!).
Special guests will be joining us on the day, with songwriting workshops from some of Ireland’s most successful songwriters.
We will have a live Q&A with music industry professionals, who can offer advice on how to get ahead in the music industry.
Young musicians are invited to send us videos for inclusion and broadcast on the festival. Videos can range from simple home-made videos shot on your phone, or if you have the opportunity to make one in your club or project, following Covid guidelines, we will of course accept this too.
We welcome original material, but we will also accept covers, so don’t be shy!
All genres are welcome, from Urban and Grime, from Rock to Indie, to singer songwriter. Poetry too!
We currently have 60 slots available (already filling up). We are calling on youth clubs and projects to put young artists forward to be a part of this very exciting event!
