Other aspects being taught include how to make a music video, from director Lochlainn McKenna and music producer Daithí.

A scratch and DJ workshop will also be taught by RTÉ 2FM’s Mo K and MathMan also.

Attendees will also be able to visit the IYMAs marketplace which will feature demos and will give attendees the opportunity to learn new skills around the creative and music industry, with BIMM Institute Dublin, Girls Rock Dublin,  IMRO and RTÉ 2FM all in attendance with the latter broadcasting live from the event.
