This study aims to “map” popular music in Dublin, bringing together historical and contemporary understandings of Dublin’s popular music landscape. Through this survey, in addition to ethnographic field research, we seek to improve our understanding of the role popular music (across all genres: pop, rock, hip hop, jazz, etc.) plays in the lives of Dublin’s fans (citizens and tourists), by asking you to reflect on your memories of past musical experiences, your present day listening practices and preferences.
The survey forms part of a research project entitled “Mapping Popular Music in Dublin,” which surveys contemporary popular music experience in Dublin, and will explore the city’s popular music heritage along with literary and visual representations of its varied culture(s). It will lead to scholarly publications and to initiatives/materials promoting popular music engagement in the Dublin urban region, aligning with the respective missions of tourism, civic arts and local industry concerns, and contributing to broader strategies to position Dublin as an internationally recognised ‘city of music’.
