The Resonate Stage

Proudly sponsored by The Waterford Academy of Music & Arts


Resonate, a new band management company, which is the brainchild of WAMA’s Trevor Darmody, once again brings an eclectic mix of youthful bands and musicians to this year’s Spraoi Festival. The company was established to give young musicians a helping hand in getting off the ground, by finding them gigs and providing them with gear and advice.

Resonate will be presenting three acts at Spraoi this year on the Resonate Stage along with special guests Gorilla Troubadour.
