National Music Day
Ireland's first National Music Day takes place on 16 April 2010.
National Music Day is a day long celebration of music throughout Ireland, coordinated by Music Network.
In this, the inaugural year, there will be hundreds of free live music events across all genres/types of music in towns and villages all over the country as well as two flagship events in Dublin and Limerick that will showcase music of the highest quality.
In recognition of the influence that music has in our lives, everyone is invited to join in this celebration: from buskers to brass bands to Bartók, and everything in between. If you have an idea for a live music event, we want to hear about it.
Events will take place in bandstands, workplaces, shopping areas, streets, as well as traditional music venues throughout the country.
