2012 MRU Music Awards

2012 MRU Music Awards Are Fast Approaching!

The finalists have been announced. The winners have been chosen. Only days stand in the way.

This Sunday (Dec 16th) a musical event unlike any other will hit the heart of Dublin as the first MRU Awards shows is set to take place in The Mercantile. From being the premier platform for unsigned acts in Ireland (also representing a huge portion of the UK and elsewhere) MRU is giving back to the artists that helped to make 2012 such a successful year.

“Congrats to Music Review Unsigned for pulling off the first EVER unsigned awards in Ireland, they are paving the way with BALLS OF STEEL! Wohoooooo :)”– Mama Kaz

What kind of awards show would it be if it didn’t feature some live performances? Well, MRU have that covered as a stellar and diverse line-up will hit the stage and grace their audience and peers with the very best music to highlight the year that was.

Performances on the night will include –
Juliets Rescue
Soldiers Can't Dance

Fox E & The Good Hands
Frantic Jack
Donna Marie & Michael J
Cash Is King

It’s free in on the night so bring your friends but get down early as it’s sure to fill up quick.
