The nominees for the Choice Music Prize were announced earlier this month.

One of the ten bands and artists who released an album deemed one of the best of 2019 (by a judging panel) will be crowned winner at the Vicar Street ceremony on Thursday, March 5th.

As always, there will be a live show featuring some of the nominees on the night.

Seven of the ten acts have now been confirmed and are as follows:


Fontaines D.C.


Junior Brother

Maija Sofia

Mick Flannery

Sorcha Richardson

SOAK, Lankum and Girl Band have yet to be confirmed. Lankum are playing in Allston, Massachussets on the day of the ceremony, while Girl Band are scheduled to play the 6Music Festival in London on the same day. The possibility of SOAK joining the fray is as yet unknown.

Tickets to the event are on sale now, but if you can't make it on the night there will also be a live radio broadcast on 2FM from 7 – 11pm. Highlights from the show will also be shown in a special programme on Sunday March 15th.
