13 of Ireland's best artists will play tribute to Nirvana’s legacy album Nevermind in this 30th Anniversary special, in aid of MASI.
On the 24th September 1991 Nirvana released their breakthrough album Nevermind, an album that would change the course of music history forever, Cobain’s melodic prowess, enigmatic lyricism and raucous guitar playing would be something that musicians the world over continue to emulate.
Released in 1991, Nevermind is now one of the best selling albums of all time, featuring singles such as Smells Like Teen Spirit, Come as You Are, Lithium and In Bloom. 13 artists will take to the stages of The Grand Social and Sin É respectively to perform the tracklist from this iconic album.
Thirty years later a selection of Irish acts from across the island have come together in celebration of Nevermind, each performing a track from the album in an event which will be live-streamed on the 24th September 2021. The line-up, consisting of Maija Sofia, Havvk, Alien She, Cruiser, Laurie Shaw, Junk Drawer, Uaim, Aoife Wolf, Pretty Happy, Elaine Malone, Mob Wife and Mhaol will be a combination of videos performed and recorded in Dublin venues Sin E and The Grand Social as well as others made by the artists in their homes, with all the profits from the event being donated to the MASI charity dedicated to the The Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland.
This will be broadcasted via Micromedia screens all over the country, whose previous projects include the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles’ White Album. A QR code will be displayed for viewers to tune into the audio of the pre-recorded, high production livestream.
This project has been funded Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media Live Venue Collective for all the support!
