Requests for information or application forms should be directed to Music Network.


The Performance and Touring Award aims to: assist Irish and Ireland-based musicians in realising performance opportunities; offer increased employment opportunities to Irish musicians; develop the skills base of Irish artists in areas such as project planning and administration, self-promotion and self management; and offer a new source of music programming to concert promoters, and in turn to audiences throughout Ireland.

Examples of eligible projects include tours, concert series and individual concerts to take place anywhere within the Republic of Ireland. The award is also open to multidisciplinary projects with live music as a key element, and to collaborative projects involving other Irish or visiting international artists.

Music Network has developed guidelines and information sheets to assist musicians in planning their project prior to application. Musicians are also encouraged to liaise and co-plan with prospective promoters in all areas relating to their projects.
