Couch By Couchwest: Online Music Festival




Couch By Couchwest Ireland, 'Heyday'


Info: Couch By Couchwest began in 2011 with the novel idea of bringing the music festival online, taking it's name from the well-known Texan festival South By Southwest, it runs in tandem with SXSW each year from the 15th-21st of March. The concept revolves around musicians / artists submitting videos to the festival website of performances from their living-rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, wherever. The CXCW crew then select the best performances and put them online for music fans to enjoy, for free. 

Running the Irish side of things the past three years has been our own talented song-writer Tony Fitz who featured on the blog's Best Irish Tracks of 2014.In addition to Tony, Irish acts performing on CXCW this year included Participant, Sive, We The Oceanographers, GrĂ¡inne Hunt and a surprise visit and performance or two with Glen Hansard. As well as the performance of Mic Christopher's 'Heyday' above, you can watch all of the other performances on the CXCW site here http://couchbycouchwest.com/?tag=2015+irish-showcase.
