Sharon Barry, Director, Culture Ireland says: “Culture Ireland is delighted to welcome a record number of international delegates to Ireland Music Week in person this year.  This annual influx of labels, agents, festival and showcase bookers, amongst other music industry representatives will make an essential contribution to the growth of global audiences for Irish music, as well as increased opportunities for Irish artists”.

The conference will take place across four days, starting with targeted activity for the 50 showcasing artists on Tuesday 4th (info to follow later in the month). On Wednesday 5th IMW will host a whole day of panels and discussions with AIM Ireland for their members and attending delegates.

The live music showcases will take place over two nights, Thursday 6th and Friday 7th, with showcasing artists performing across six stages in three venues at The Grand Social, Lost Lane and the Workman’s Club. Lost Lane is also the festival hub and location for the conference during the day.

Ireland Music Week continues its partnership with Keychange this year and will welcome three international innovators to take part in the conference – Affa Alizadeh (Sweden), Kertu Mägar (Estonia) and Lennea Lyssand (Norway). As always, the festival strives to achieve at least a 50% representation of women and underrepresented gender minorities in its line-up.
