Tipp FM launch Local Hero Talent search

As part of Irish Music Month on Tipp FM we want you to take part in our Tipperary Local Hero Talent search.

If you’re an artist, or in a band, your work could be featured live on Tipp FM this October.

You will be in with a chance to win an overall €5,000 prize fund, get your record released and have your music played on 25 independent radio stations across the country

IBI Chairman John Purcell says the stations are thrilled to be involved.

“IBI represents Ireland’s independent radio stations and together we’ve got over two million listeners every day.”

“We’re delighted to be leading Irish Music Month which is a fantastic new campaign with Hot Press magazine and its all about supporting Irish music. Irish radio is at the forefront of breaking new artists, playing Irish artists and keeping Irish audiences in touch with all the great music that we’ve got.”
