The Beatyard is an all-day music expo taking place at the Twisted Pepper (Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1) this Saturday (December 5).

Organised by Bodytonic Music, The Beatyard will feature a ton of music, art and multimedia workshops, talks and performances as well as a music and record fair, food stalls and much more.

The full line-up for Satuday is here.

I’ll be hosting a number of Banter discussions on the day in The Mezz. Here’s the schedule of what to expect.

2pm – The Scoop Foundation – Founders Andy and Calvin Sweeney talk about their body’s approach to charitable fundraising and the projects they are involved with.

3pm – Gigging for a living – Peter Symes from Skinny Wolves on the who, what, how, where and when of promoting shows and running a record label

4pm – How to run a weekly clubnight – Is this really the hardest gig in showbiz? Dave Parle from Antics and Giles Armstrong from Electric Shock tell all

5pm – The Choice Cuts story – Interview with Choice Cuts’ founder Mark Murphy

The Beatyard is open to all ages and admission is free, but we’d like folks to make a donation at the door to the Scoop Foundation’s project to build a music studio at Crannog Nua, a high support facility in Donabate which caters for young people with emotional and behavioral difficulties.
