Gradam Ceoil TG4 – Production over 4 years

TG4 invites proposals from production companies for the staging, production and live broadcast of Gradam Ceoil TG4 for the years 2022,2023,2024,2025.

Gradam Ceoil TG4 is the station’s primary arts event, the highlight of the channel’s annual music and arts output. It is now acknowledged as one of the most important occasions in the traditional music calendar. As an entertainment show, Gradam Ceoil TG4 appeals to a wide national audience outside of the core traditional music community.

2022 will mark the twenty fifth year of the Gradaim, the Oscars of Traditional Music which gives due recognition and celebrates the creativity, and excellence, the communities and all that embellishes Ireland’s most vibrant live art.

To date, Gradam Ceoil TG4 has taken the form of a Gala concert and awards ceremony, broadcast live from a prestigious venue capable of holding a large audience with additional digital short form material. Gradam will grown in the four years of this tender to become a multimedia event to appeal to all age profiles and to the widest possible audience outside of traditional music lovers.
Performance will remain at the centre of the production and emphasis should be placed on entertainment, innovation, and inclusivity.

Submissions should be uploaded to the TG4 E Comm portal by selecting round type ‘Gradam Ceoil TG4 2022’ by Wednesday, 3rd November 2021.
