Over 100 Young Musicians to Perform at SubSounds Youth Music Festival! 

Disciples of Abbey Road

Over 100 young musicians from Music Generation programmes in Dublin City, Fingal, South Dublin, Wicklow, Meath, and Kildare will be performing at the SubSounds Youth Music Festival on Saturday 24th June at TU Dublin Tallaght.  

Hosted by DJ Dan Hegarty (2FM), the free festival will feature youth bands and artists such as FLORENCE RDThe Hex, Daire Heffernan, MUTE, and Cohorts. This youth-centered festival will run from 12.30pm – 8.30pm and will celebrate young musicians performing everything from contemporary pop, to electronic to choral! 

The festival has been launched to create a space for young musicians from different communities, backgrounds and musical tastes to collaborate and form musical connections. The SubSounds Youth Music Festival 2023 will act as the foundation for an annual event that will offer opportunities to young people interested in all aspects of the music industry and performance.  

‘Being involved in Music Generation through school helped us as a band find our sound. The SubSounds Festival offers us a great opportunity to get our sound out there while also helping our development as musicians and performers. The festival will give us a great idea of how festivals are run and what it is like to be involved. Perfect for our future ambitions.  It’s also a great opportunity to meet with other music projects that are working toward the same goal as ourselves. None of this would be possible without the impact Music Generation has made on us.’
