The Irish Music Industry Podcast

Jun 10, 2019

In 2018 more than 300 bands entered 2FM's 'Play The Picnic' competition for a shot at playing Electric Picnic. Some of the 10 finalists of that competition were never played on 2FM. The two acts that topped the text vote didn't receive the studio sessions set out in the terms and conditions of the competition. 

This week's episode looks at the support 2FM affords to young independent Irish bands by through the lens of the 'Play The Picnic' competition. It's not a rose tinted lens. Guests are 2FM's Head of Music Content Alan Swan and members of competition finalists Exiles & Electric Shore.
