Good news for new musicians as Guinness Amplify is launched to help emerging artists in Ireland

The new programme will give new acts a platform to reach a bigger audience...

Some great news for up and coming artists in Ireland as Guinness unveiled a new and very exciting music programme with the launch of Guinness Amplify.


Guinness Amplify will give emerging musicians the chance to play in hundreds of stages in pubs across the country, as well as providing them with some of the resources and expertise they need to help them along the way.

The resources for chosen artists is to spend time in some of Ireland’s top recording studios, which is massive for any budding talent. The expertise will allow acts access to a panel of music experts - David Kitt, Jonny Quinn, Nialler9, Sinead Troy and Stuart Clark - all offering advice on how to make it in the industry at some of the Masterclass sessions.

Guinness Amplify offers artists the opportunity to perform all over Ireland from Thursday through to Sunday across 5 weekends, kicking off on the 11th September in Leinster and will rotate around Ireland, focusing on a different region each week over the course of the five weekends.


Once a weekend, over the five weeks of Guinness Amplify Live, some of the biggest names in the music industry will perform surprise gigs in pubs in unknown locations. The line-up of major artists will include Kodaline, Ellie Goulding, Walking On Cars and Daithí. More names will also be announced during the summer.

Following all of that practicing, recording, playing live and honing their craft, the judges will choose a number of acts to perform at Guinness Amplify Live Stages, which are five showcase events in some of Ireland's most renowned music venues in February 2015.

It's a really exciting initiative but to get involved you need to register on before July 31st. Best of luck guys.
