BlueFire Street Fest is the first Irish organisation to launch a Music Declares Emergency stage. Music Declares Emergency is a group of artists, music industry professionals and organisations that stand together to declare a climate and ecological emergency and call for an immediate governmental response to protect all life on Earth. Artists performing include - MUNKY a trashy funk to psych-punk band who have toured Europe with The Meat Puppets. Their new single ‘Megaton’ deals with themes of guilt and ecological disaster, set to a post-apocalyptic backdrop. DANNY G & THE MAJOR 7ths are an Irish neo-soul band with a smooth, laid-back groove and a positive message. An all-star line-up ranging from 5 to 8 musicians including members of Hozier, Loah, Fehdah and Zaska. MACUSHLA create a distinctive and edgy alt/folk sound, rooted in Irish traditional music and song. OUTSIDER YP of Cork/Tralee hip­-hop collective ApocalypsE, pushes against genres with his mix of reality and fiction in lyrics, delivered over unorthodox beats. SHAKALAK is the brainchild of poetician John Cummins and musician Fin Divilly. A love of lyric and melody is the heart foundation of their creativity.
