Announcing: Who Dares Wins
The third volume in our Cork Rock City series is slated for a September release. Submissions are taken from today. More info inside…
Following on from the successes of the first two Cork Rock City compilations, released in 2010 and 2011 respectively, Drop-d.ie is proud to unveil the next chapter in its ongoing document of Cork musical culture: Who Dares Wins.
We know by now that Cork City and county plays host to a rich and diverse collection of artists and bands. We know by our festivals, our practice spaces, our garages, our bedrooms, our blogosphere, our local papers. It’s always growing, always getting stronger. We as a community have achieved so much in a short space of time, and even in hard times and amid venue closures, outlets have always been found for expression, artistic growth and expansion.
As Drop-d.ie prepares for its tenth anniversary next year, Who Dares Wins aims and strives to reflect on an ever-expanding Cork music scene, with community contributions not just from musical acts, but from artists, writers and photographers. Furthermore, the compilation will be curated and compiled with help from personalities from around the Cork music scene’s multifarious genre circles.
Who Dares Wins: Cork Rock City Vol. 3 releases September as a free digital download.
Full details will be announced shortly.
