Youth Work Ireland’s Irish Youth Music Awards (IYMAs) is returning to Croke Park for its all-ages National Day on Saturday May 9th, 2020.
IYMAs National Day 2020
The IYMAs National Day will include a large education hub with masterclasses and workshops from some of Ireland’s top industry professionals. These masterclasses will offer an opportunity to learn more about the creative industries with hands on demonstrations as well as offering exclusive performances.
The IYMAs marketplace
The IYMAs marketplace will be run in partnership with BIMM Institute Dublin, IMRO and RTÉ 2FM. RTÉ 2FM will also be broadcasting live from the event.
The event also will feature performances by young musicians from across the entire island of Ireland aged 12-19, performing across two stages throughout the day, and offers ticket holders and performers access to Ireland’s top music industry personnel. The event also marks the start of Youth Work Ireland week with other events happening across the country.
The overall winning region of the Irish Youth Music Awards will win recording time in a professional recording studio, a recording session in RTÉ 2FM’s Studio 8 and a full backline provided by Music Maker Dublin. They will also produce an album of their own original tracks released on physical CD with a professional design.
Last year’s IYMAs album stormed the Irish compilation charts entering at number five. The album will be digitally distributed worldwide through all major outlets including iTunes and Spotify.
