Youbloom Dublin

No, we haven’t lost it entirely, we’re not writing about Bloom festival in the Phoenix Park, this is something worth checking out and it’s music related, not plant related!

Youbloom – “To host over 50 international acts and 50 Irish acts in 5 different venues from 28 – 30 June 2013”

This is a festival aimed at promoting new bands and is set for Dublin in June. It will take over five of Dublin’s nicest small venues: Mercantile, Odessa, Workman’s Club, Grand Social and Twisted Pepper. Each venue will host an evening with a particular musical slant, jazz, indie, metal, reggae, electro etc, so you can settle in the one place and hear the best and brightest of Irish and International young things!

It was created as a development programme for unsigned artists, and as such will host a Music Conference! Yes, that’s right, a weekend of lectures about music, that will be held in the College of Surgeons on the same weekend (29th and 30th of June). It will include panels, speed sessions and rountables with panelists. Roundtables will focus on songwriting, performance, social media, demo creation, and international marketplaces.
