About the festival

The Gospel Rising Music Festival is a social, fun and energetic gospel music festival, made up of workshops and gigs showcasing Ireland’s many gospel choir music styles.

The festival is organised and run entirely by volunteers, most of whom are active in various gospel choirs in Ireland. Every cent raised goes into the festival and helping to spread the joy and positivity of singing with others, especially in a gospel choir.

Whether you enjoy playing or singing gospel music in a choir or just singing in the shower, this is the opportunity to experience gospel music, network gospel resources, forge friendships and have fun together doing what you love over a jam-packed weekend.

Now in its Eleventh year, the 2022 Gospel Rising Music Festival returns to Dublin City for the second time for another year of fun, learning and music!
