Now in its third year, love:live music continues to grow from strength to strength and this year, the event will take place on the Summer Solstice, Thursday 21st June to coincide with celebrations for International Music Day – Fête de la Musique.
The love:live music movement is a celebration of Ireland’s musical identity and aims to promote access to Irish music for everyone. 120 countries around the world will co-ordinate their national music day on Thursday 21st June and Irish musicians, both professional and amateur, are urged to occupy a stage and create a free music experience. Here is a guideline of simple steps to start:
- Have a think, speak with other performers/promoters in your area, and see what ideas come up.
- Now get your planning boots on and book, organize and plan your event time for 21st June 2012
- Once you have a solid idea, you can speak with us at love:live music or simply go ahead to step 4!
- Register your event on the website and get ready for a fun filled day and night
Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a first-time event organiser, we want you to get involved! You could organise a regular gig or concert… or something a little more unusual! Last year over 160 musical events took place across 24 counties. Event organisers put on free shows in a huge variety of venues including, halls, schools, churches, libraries, pubs, outdoors- in short, everywhere and anywhere!
