This panel discussion puts live music centre-stage. Some of the most common questions directed at the SelfMade initiative revolve around navigating the live music scene, from advice about performance nerves to the practicalities of getting on the road. This event brings together new and seasoned musicians and live music experts to discuss the steps of building a live profile and how the live scene has impacted their careers.

What’s it all about?

The Going Live panel will look at some of the fundamental questions about building a live music presence. What do promoters expect when they hear from a new artist? How does your live activity help to strengthen your releases? What is the role of an agent? What are the practicalities of applying for festivals and booking your first tour? What have you learned, loved and hated in your years on the live scene? This discussion aims to give new artists genuine advice on how to self-manage their booking and live promotion, how to plan and budget for their first tour, and looking ahead to build a team around their live-project. The discussion will wrap up with a Q&A session with the audience. Following the SelfMade format, the event will open and close with live, stripped back performances – from Gráinne Hunt and Ailbhe Reddy.

What is SelfMade?

A platform to explore DIY music in Ireland through performance, discussion, and art, with a strong focus on women in music. Their goal is to celebrate the work of DIY musicians and to create a supportive space to explore the realities of getting a music career off the ground. SelfMade is organised independently by artist, Joanna Bain, and musician/label coordinator, Julie Hough (HAVVK, Veta Records) in collaboration with a collective of Irish musicians.
