Irish artists: Would you like to win €5,000 and a major support slot at an iconic Irish venue?

Update: This event has been cancelled for now due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Applications are now open from solo musicians and bands to audition for a big opportunity to secure a support slot for a major international band at an iconic Irish venue in May 2020. A €5,000 bursary will also be awarded to the winning artist(s).

A professional music industry adjudication panel will listen to each entry and whittle down what we hope will be hundreds of entries to select six artists to play a live audition final, which will take place in Dublin on Friday March 20th. 

During the audition, the headline artist and iconic venue will be disclosed under a confidentiality agreement to the auditionees. The big night itself in May will be a private event, with the audience comprising 700 invited guests from the world of music, arts, and business. The winner’s 20 minute set will be professionally video/audio recorded for your own use, along with a complimentary release package from Yangaroo Music Ireland. 


Update: This event has been cancelled for now due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
