Throwback to NI Music Showcase in Berlin

Back in April we returned to Berlin to deepen our bond with the brilliant city of Berlin. With support from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and British Council Northern Ireland Artists development fund we were able to showcase some of the 2018 Northern Ireland Music Prize nominees CHERYM ArvoParty and Hot Cops. Led by our Talent Development coordinator Charlene Hegarty, with inside support and knowledge from Berlin based LOLA and Caoimhe McAlister the artists met with, exchanged ideas and learned from industry and peers in the Berlin music sector.

From Belfast to Berlin

There are real similarities between Belfast and Berlin. Both cities have experienced significant trauma and divisive walls, yet both are also wellsprings of music and creativity. To showcase the positive side of the city and the quality of its homegrown talent, the Oh Yeah Music Centre brought Hot Cops, CHERYM and ArvoParty from Belfast to Berlin to showcase The Northern Ireland Music Prize. Belfast got a taste of what the Berlin music industry has to offer, and Berlin got a faceful of Belfast banter and good tunes.
