Choice Music Prize 2016: Katie Kim, Overhead The Albatross, All Tvvins, Bantum, We Cut Corners & more – Vicar Street, 9th March

The live lineup for this year’s RTÉ Choice Music Prize Live Event has been announced

The award ceremony and live event takes place in Vicar St on Thursday 9th March. The acts in contention for the €10,000 prize fund – provided by The Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and The Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA) – and also performing live on the night are:

All Tvvins – IIVV

 

 

Bantum – Move

 

 

Wallis Bird – Home

 

 

The Divine Comedy – Foreverland

 

 

Lisa Hannigan – At Swim

 

 

Katie Kim – Salt

 

 

Overhead, The Albatross – Learning To Growl

 

 

Rusangano Family – Let The Dead Bury The Dead

 

 

We Cut Corners – The Cadence Of Others

 

Unfortunately, James Vincent McMorrow will not be joining them as he will be in Australia, which apparently is quite far away, plugging his nominated album We Move. We find this to be an acceptable excuse, so here’s one of his videos too.

 

In addition to the winner trousering a handy €10,000 to spend on recording, production or a new kitchen, all of the shortlisted acts will receive a set of steak knives a specially commissioned award.

The event will be broadcast live on RTÉ 2fm from 7-11pm, with a TV broadcast on RTÉ2 in an indeterminate time slot “approximately one week later.” Tickets are available now via Ticketmaster and are priced €26.50 including booking fee.
