THREE CITY STAGES SETS SIGHTS ON DUBLIN AS NATIONWIDE BUSKING TOUR CRANKS UP VOLUME FOR IRELAND’S TALENTPadraig Conlon 03 Feb 2023
City Stages comes to Dublin this February 11th on South Anne St.
The custom-built stage will each host a line-up of some of Ireland’s most talented up-and-coming musicians from 12-3pm with special guest performers also joining at select locations.
The line-up will consist of Brinda Irani, Salamay, Zeztra, Daniel Armstrong, Conor Marcus, Brad Heidii. Applications for buskers to perform on a City Stage are now open at 3.ie/CityStages.
City Stages supports the next generation of musicians, currently learning their trade by busking on Ireland’s city streets, to progress their careers by offering them the opportunity to perform on the biggest stages in the country.
To date, City Stages has provided a platform for emerging Irish musicians to share their music with previous performances from Korey Power, Leah Moran, Robert Dawson, and Uisce Jones.
Along with celebrating new and exciting talents, Three City Stages has also brought highly-acclaimed Irish acts to entertain crowds with a surprise acoustic performances from pop band, Wild Youth and folk-pop artist Saibh Skelly kicking off the first showcases in Limerick and Waterford earlier this January.
The initiative will tour Ireland throughout the year, providing a platform for buskers and emerging musicians to showcase to new audiences and promote their music with opportunities for those to take their performance from the smallest stages to some of Ireland’s biggest by opening for major artists at selected shows at 3Arena and 3Olympia.
Those chosen to perform will be given their own dedicated performance slot and recorded content of their performance while every musician who applies will be offered access to a series of mentoring masterclasses led by a panel of Irish music industry professionals.
The mentorship will provide the burgeoning musicians with information on everything they need to help progress their music careers, from advice on management and booking live shows to increasing their fan base and pitching their music to media.
The City Stages initiative is supported by Sony Music Ireland and AIM Ireland as well as City Stages ambassador, broadcaster Tracy Clifford.
City Stages is part of Three’s commitment through their All For Music positioning to support and nurture new and exciting musicians in Ireland and help them to grow their careers from the smallest stages to the largest.
As sponsors for some of the country’s biggest venues such as 3Arena & 3Olympia, as well as Electric Picnic, Three can offer unique opportunities to Ireland’s burgeoning talent.
‘All For Music’ is built around the collective experience of the enjoyment we get from music, the way we connect with people and how it is celebrated.
This depth of connection is the reason that we love it so much, both as individuals and as a brand.
This togetherness is why Three are ‘all in’ on music.
