RTÉ 2FM Rising

2FM Rising is dedicated to championing new Irish artists for the year ahead. The Rising list is a curated list of 12 artists and acts to listen to in 2018 allowing the station to bring these artist to listeners attention and share their music on air and online.

In addition to the list, 2FM also wanted to bring that new music experience to life and to champion emerging Irish artists in a live music environment. The station is delighted to be partnering with Body & Soul to bring the 2FM Rising stage to life. Body & Soul is the perfect place to curate this unique line-up of explosive and eclectic new talent on the Irish music scene.

Director of Music for 2FM Alan Swan said: “2FM Rising is an integral part of what the station does, we are a public service media station for the Irish youth and for that reason giving airplay to emerging talent and making new music discovery part of our content plan is at the very core of what we do. We want to celebrate new music talent across our schedule with Rising acts play listed across that day and that’s why we are taking a stage and curating acts form the 2018 list along with some other fresh new sounds to one of Ireland’s most prolific music festivals.”
