Ireland Music Week
Ireland Music Week is an essential event in an artists’ development and profile of the music industry in Ireland. It has been a challenge to maintain it in the calendar for 2020, but we feel we have come up with an exciting alternative to the real event. The main aim is to allow both industry and fans here and abroad to witness the next crop of Irish talent. The showcases and robust and busy conference schedule we are working towards online will maintain IMW’s essential presence as a key international facing showcase event.
Ireland Music Week has been a crucial moment in the global music industry calendar for 18 years and has been a catalyst event for so many now successful Irish artists. In this challenging time for the artists, our sector and the Irish music industry ecosystem and audiences of live vibrant new music, we hope the week of talks, workshops and gigs will bring some normality to these times. We can’t wait for music fans and professionals in Ireland and beyond to spend an hour a night discovering and supporting the soundtrack to Ireland’s future. All discussions will take place in the context of Covid-19 and the impact is having on the industry”.
