Irish Music Month

Irish Music Month – A New Local Hero

South East Radio is proud to be part of Irish Music Month which takes place for the month of March and we are searching for Wexford’s upcoming musical talent.  You could be a solo artist or a band that plays any genre of music, we want to get you heard across the airwaves and on our social channels.

This initiative is run in partnership with Hot Press, and involves 25 independent Irish radio stations – including South East Radio – who through Hot Press and the IBI (Independent Broadcasters of Ireland) have received funding from the BAI Sound & Vision fund to promote and celebrate Irish music.  IMRO, RAAP and MCD Productions are also supporting Irish Music Month.

During the month, a total of €105,000 will be paid directly to artists.  The four station finalists who are shortlisted will receive €650 and €225 for their technical crew.

From pop to country, R & B to hip hop, or rock to classical, we want to hear from you.  This is a massive opportunity for local talent to shine, so get in touch with the details below.

How to get involved.

If you or your band would like to get involved:

Send an email to Joseph Bridges at with the following info before the closing date of Tuesday 31st January:

  • Your name/band name.
