I took a short online survey for this interesting research project called “Mapping Popular Music in Dublin” and I wanted to make other U2 fans aware of it and encourage them to take the survey too. I think the survey closes on September 30, 2015.
The project “aims to map popular music experience in Dublin by looking at popular music from the viewpoint of fans (citizens and tourists), musicians, and music industry personnel. The purpose is to inform tourism, culture and music industry organisations by providing the first comprehensive overview of popular music experience in Dublin to date.” The project is led by Dr. John O’Flynn (Principal Investigator) and Dr. Áine Mangaoang, and coordinated by St. Patrick’s College, Dublin City University, and funded by Fáilte Ireland.
Learn more about the project and take the survey here.
If you live in Dublin or have been in Dublin as a popular music tourist, or if you have some distinct impressions about the Dublin popular music scene you’d like to share, the project would benefit from hearing from you.
You can follow the project and the results, and get updates about related events, at its Facebook page.
