The Music Industry Stimulus Package involves three funding schemes, designed to help sustain the popular and commercial music sector, across all music genres including rock, pop, hip hop, indie, jazz, country & western, traditional and folk.

Under this package, a fund of €1,000,000 has been put in place to stimulate areas of work which artists would usually fund with income from own sources, including live event fees.
The music stimulus schemes are targeted at professional musicians and their teams and will support song writing camps, recording and album releases thereby assisting with national and international dissemination of Irish artists’ work. 

The aim is to ensure that Irish musicians, engineers, PR, media, agents, labels and publishers can continue to develop and share their work worldwide in the context of COVID restrictions.
The Music Industry Stimulus Package schemes are managed on behalf of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media by First Music Contact and will be subject to panel assessment.
