The next generation of songwriters and musicians are already nailing it - call down to see why there’s such a buzz about original music in Galway with an open mic and headline performances from Sarah Brookfield and Stevie Healy. Presented by Music Generation Galway City.


Black Gate Introducing is an exciting new music festival showcasing emerging artists and celebrating original music from Galway.

Black Gate Introducing brings together local music promoters, venues, collectives, record labels and projects to present an exciting new music festival showcasing emerging artists in Galway. Over four days (June 16 - June 19), the festival will feature lineups curated by Not Bad, Free House, A Modern Movement and The Black Gate, as well as a record label showcase with music merch stalls and an all-ages youth music showcase curated by Livefeed.

From the grunge-fueled rock of HAVVK and the energetic post-punk of Punching Peaches to the mellow-indie brilliance of Jossle and Ruth Mac; from groundbreaking singer-songwriters like Rodney Owl and A Lilac Decline to rapper Sebi C and turntable legend Jimmy Penguin, Black Gate Introducing has something for music fans of all tastes and persuasions.

The aim of Black Gate Introducing is to contribute to a new sustainable vision for local music - one that supports emerging talent, celebrates Galway’s original music heritage and gives opportunities to the next generation of songwriters, musicians, promoters, designers, photographers and sound engineers.

Four days, seven venues and twenty-five incredible artists - allow us to introduce you to some of the most exciting music coming out of Galway in 2022.

Black Gate Introducing is brought to you by The Black Gate and supported by Galway City Council, Galway Arts Centre and The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
