SXSW Success

South by Southwest 2015 has proved to be another overwhelmingly success for the Irish acts attending with First Music Contact in partnership with Culture Ireland.

The Full Irish, a daylong Irish music showcase, which was also covered live by RTE 10, was filled to capacity with many influential bookers and promoters.


Bands/artists like Girl Band, Le Galaxie, James Vincent McMorrow, Orla Gartland and All Tvvins proved particularly popular and hopes are they will build on previous Irish SXSW success stories such as Snow Patrol and Kodaline.


Hozier, who performed at SXSW in 2014 with First Music Contact and Culture Ireland support, met with An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, T.D in Atlanta before the first of his headline gigs and amazing Grammy Awards performance this year, drawing attention to Ireland's success at this key music industry platform.
