Every year Belfast hosts the largest music conference in Ireland and alongside of host of invaluable talks, panels and discussions, the evening features over 40 bands/artists showcasing their live shows.
These evening showcases are curated by a multitude of movers and shakers from the music industry including Nialler9, The Thin Air, PRS, IMRO and of course ourselves at Chordblossom.
For the first time at Output Belfast 2020, bands/artists will have the opportunity to apply to play one of the showcase gigs.
The application process and criteria for applying can be found below:-

3) The artist/band cannot have released their debut album yet.
If you fit these criteria and would like to showcase please submit the following via www.outputbelfast.com/showcasing
