At this year’s Youbloom@Dublin, the annual international music festival and conference launched to help new talent develop and prosper, ‘Busking Unbarred’ will take to the streets of Dublin’s Dame District.
Hosted by Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, the outdoor busking event will celebrate the spirit of buskers and the contribution they make to towns and cities.
With live music firmly embedded in its Irish roots, Tullamore Dew has been working with The Busking Project, an advocacy movement championing the rights of street performers around the globe, to support and help grow appreciation for busking artists.
The Busking Unbarred event will be taking place on Saturday, 14 June between 4.30pm and 7.30pm on the Tullamore Dew Busking Stage in Dublin’s Dame District, with Irish and international independent acts lined up.
“Busking is often overlooked as an industry tool, and yet it’s the most common way that artists can further their careers, practise their art and do what they love. With their goal of helping artists develop to their full potential in the music industry, the Youbloom festival is the perfect platform to discuss the subtleties, obstacles and benefits of taking over the streets,” said Nick Broad, founder of The Busking Project.
CEO of Youbloom Phil Harrington added: “It’s great to have the Tullamore Dew Busking Unbarred event as part of our Youbloom festival schedule this year. At Youbloom we strongly believe in supporting new talent, giving it the stage it deserves to develop and prosper and that’s what this event it all about too.”
