15-16.00

Resourcing, Developing & Funding Ireland’s Independent Music Sector

Local to global: How can the Irish independent music sector go worldwide? The Irish independent music sector continues to be a blaze of activity. Every single year, we see more and more acts, businesses and individuals coming to the fore. The talent is there – and we’re seeing the business acumen to help that talent to grow also step up. But what’s required to turn what’s happening at home into a global story? We’ve seen huge Irish success stories emerge over the last decade so geography and culture are not a barrier. What are the steps the sector itself can take? What kind of supports are required for the next wave of Fontaines DC, Villagers and Lisa O’Neill? Can government and industry agencies actually provide that or is DIY the only option? What’s the role of bodies like FMC and AIM in all of this? 

Moderator: Jim Carroll (Editor, RTE)
