youbloom is a growing community of musicians, fans and industry joined together by a love of music and the arts. We believe in the possibility of everyone finding their voice and expressing it in a world with lots more singing and dancing, a world where more and more artists are able to sustain themselves in what they love doing.
The youbloom Music Awards began in 2010 primarily as an online event with fan voting and high profile judges led by Bob Geldof. youbloom subsequently established an A&R team which also coincided with the roll out of our live program in the UK, Ireland and Argentina.
These combined elements grew into the first youbloom@Dublin in June 2013 with a music conference over two days and gigs with 90 bands from 11 countries over three nights. The conference included music industry icons Dave Robinson of Stiff Records, Tommy Silverman of the New Music Seminar, Nigel Grainge of Ensign Records, producer Rupert Hine and other music industry greats.
youbloom@LA with a similar format to youbloom@Dublin is being added in November 2014 with additional cities in development.
Our learning team is focused on artists learning the business of music in a growing DIY industry through the music conferences and offline and online courses which we will roll out in the second half of 2014.
We see our “cooperative” growing organically into a network of local offline communities joined together online. Please join us, we would love to hear from you with news about your local creative musical community.
