6. Description Abstract Ireland’s live music industry currently enjoys one of the highest per capita revenues of any country. The local concert promoters, MCD and Aiken Concerts, regularly place in the Top 30 highest grossing live music firms globally, according to industry statistics.

Yet the development of the live music industry was anything but disciplined and organised. This chapter explores the historical conditions of live music in Ireland and the factors that impacted on its development. We examine the role of the clergy in Irish cultural life, the history of large music festivals in Ireland, the ‘showband era’, the initial development of a live rock music circuit in the 1970s and the specific factors that allowed MCD to gain domestic market prominence and international growth.
