For such a small country, Ireland has made and continues to make a massive impact on modern music. Some of the finest musicians in the world have hailed from our fair emerald isle and have performed at some of the most well know venues and festivals across the globe. We set high standards when
it comes to music festivals. Over the years Slane, Electric Picnic and Oxegen have become big names on the festival scene. And new festivals such as Forbidden Fruit, Indiependence, Tennents Vital and Live in the Marquee are in high demand aswell. We are going to take you through ten of our favourite all time Irish musicians followed by ten up and coming Irish acts that predict will be making some pretty big noise on the Irish music and festival circuit in coming months.
