Irish Music Month is back for 2023 & aims to increase the amount of Irish music played on Irish radio.

iRadio along with 24 other stations across the country have signed up to make March ‘Irish Music Month’.

As well as onair talent searches, the campaign will see artists benefit from free advertising and more airplay.

How does it work for you as an artist?

If you’re a musician we want to hear from you. There is no specific genre of music for this.

Send an email to with info about yourself and an mp3 copy of your single either attached or as a downloadable Soundcloud link (Wav or Mp3 for Soundcloud)

Make sure to put ‘Music Month’ in the subject line!

We’ll choose four acts to come in and play for us.

From there, we’ll whittle it down to one iRadio finalist, who’ll then go head to head with the finalists from 24 other radio stations across Ireland.

The overall winner could win:

  • €5,000.00 Prize Money & €5,000.00 in Musical Equipment
  • A single release with Rubyworks Record Label
  • A chance to perform at a national event, broadcast across all 25 stations.

What are you waiting for? Get in touch! (The closing date is January 31st)

The event is supported by Hotpress, the IBI & the BAI, under its Sound & Vision scheme.
