The Choice Music Prize Live Event will take place in Vicar St on Thursday 3rd March. And to sound like a proper reporter, what a line up they have. The winning act will receive €10,000, and unquestionable bragging rights for 2011 (priceless). The only nominated acts not appearing on the line-up so far are Imelda May, Two Door Cinema Club and Cathy Davey.
The confirmed line-up to date is as follows (artists listed in alphabetical order):
The Cast of Cheers
Fight Like Apes
James Vincent McMorrow
The event will be broadcast live on Paul Mcloone’s show on Today FM from 7-11pm. Tickets for the event are now on sale from Ticketmaster and usual outlets at €22, including booking fee.
All of the shortlisted acts will receive a specially-commissioned award, courtesy of the
Recorded Artists Actors & Performers Ltd (RAAP).
