The National Irish Youth Music Awards Day will take place in the Aviva Stadium, Ballsbridge, Dublin on Saturday, 22nd April 2017.

The winning region will receive recording time in a studio with backline provided by Music Maker Dublin. They will also produce an album of their own released on physical CD with a professional design. The album will be digitally distributed worldwide through iTunes, Spotify and many more outlets. This event is open to all to attend and tickets are now available here from Eventbrite priced €20 including booking fee.

2016  IYMAs recipients JANAJ from Galway, who are one of eight acts featured on the IYMAs album said “Taking part in the IYMAs has opened so many doors for us as musicians and individuals. We got a glimpse into the depth of work that goes into promoting, creating, and selling an act and their music. The IYMAs has helped the young people from our team in Galway grow our passion for music, as well as gaining skills and experience in areas that we may not experience in a traditional school setting.” The link to JANAJ’s last year’s representing act is here.
