The first-ever graduates of Dublin's BIMM music college will celebrate their achievement with a free mini-festival that is open to all next Friday.

Four venues/stages in close proximity to the college's Francis Street location in Dublin 8 - The Tivoli, Tivolo Backstage, The Thomas House on Thomas Street and The Back Loft on Augustine Street (just off Thomas Street) will host the newly-graduated bands and artists for an evening of music.

38 bands and artists in total will play across the four venues, and line-up details and wristbands can be collected free of charge at each venue from 5pm on Friday 12th.

You never know, you may just happen upon an early gig by the next Irish global music star. There are some really promising bands in there - like Blades Club and Color//Sound - that are well worth catching.
