“It’s been yet another great year for music from Northern Ireland. The shortlisted 12 are just a taste of what we have to offer, but what a strong example in this list. The continued partnership with Blue Moon for the NI Music Prize and the Sound of Belfast Festival is also a magnificent endorsement from them on our belief in the power of local music. It’s also great to welcome PPL as supporters of the Prize and we are delighted to continue the relationship with PRS on the Legend Award. It’s going to be a great ten days and the Prize and Legend Awards evening will be a fitting end to another celebration of all that is great about local music.” Charlotte Dryden, CEO of the Oh Yeah Music Centre
