Irish Youth Music Awards
The Irish Youth Music Awards, is coming to the Aviva Stadium on Saturday 16 April.
Organised by Youth Work Ireland, the national event will see young musicians aged 12 – 19 from across the country representing their community and gaining business experience in the music industry. This is the ninth year of the programme which brings some of Ireland’s top music industry personnel directly into contact with young musicians.
The Irish Youth Music Awards is an educational programme for young bands and musicians aged 12-19 and is an official “Challenge Partner” of Gaisce. Aimed at creating teamwork and friendship at local level, the project also provides first hand work experience in all areas associated with the music business such as PR, stage management, graphic design, photography and more.
The programme honours the most effective music projects run by groups of young people based on the entire project from the band, to the crew, to the promotion and approach to the competition.
In addition to performing at the Aviva Stadium, young musicians will have the opportunity to attend workshops and masterclasses in vocals, drums, song-writing and bass and attend music industry panels led by music industry professionals including BIMM lecturers.
The winning region will receive five days recording time in a studio and a full backline provided by Music Maker Dublin. They will also produce an album of their own released on physical CD with a professional design. The album will be digitally distributed worldwide through iTunes, Spotify and many more outlets.
