Are you tired of music festivals that indie artists can’t seem to get into? Have you been hoping for a festival to come to your town instead of you having to travel hours to get there? Well there’s a new festival in Ireland this summer that’s going to change everything. INDIE WEEK Ireland is all about showcasing the best independent acts from all over Europe. Whether you’re totally DIY or signed to an independent label, we want to give you a chance to further your career. Showcases in Dublin and Limerick will be judged by members of the European music industry, and we want to put you in the spotlight.
Want more? The top act from INDIE WEEK Ireland will have the opportunity to play at the INDIE WEEK Canada festival in Toronto this coming October. Also, in celebration of Canada Day (July 1st). INDIE WEEK Ireland will be bringing over some of Canada’s finest independent acts.
Festival dates this summer:
July 1st – An Cruiscin Lan – Cork
July 2nd – Roisin Dubh – Galway
July 3rd – Whelan’s – Dublin
July 4th – Dolan’s – Limerick
Headlining all dates will be top acts from the 2007 and 2008 Canadian festival – Vesta Varro and Walter Mitty & The Realists. After their victory at INDIE WEEK Canada 07, Vesta Varro signed with a German booking agent and were invited to play more festivals in Canada such as the Rogers Spring Music Festival. Being named top act in INDIE WEEK Canada 08 also helped Walter Mitty & The Realists to secure a slot at the Canadian Music Week festival earlier this year, which led to them signing with a Canadian management company. Both acts hail from Limerick, Ireland, and are grateful to have had the opportunity to play INDIE WEEK.
