Here are the promoters, festivals & venues who were allocated the €25 million fund for live events for summer 2021


The recipients of the Live Performance Support Scheme €25 million fund to assist commercial venues, producers and promoters in putting on live events this summer has received an overdue announcement.

237 organisations have benefitted from the scheme on this round, after November 2020’s fund, which totalled 58 in that round and was €5 million in total. 237 successful applicants were chosen out of 400.

The scheme aims to support live performances particularly where capacity for live attendance is restricted due to Covid-19, and where funding will make live performances viable or alternatively make them available online if audiences cannot attend due to restrictions.
