Rhyme Island

  • Concert
  • Workshop

Welcome to Rhyme Island, a youth rap initiative powered by GMCBeats and the Kabin Studio, in collaboration with Creative Ireland and Cruinniú na nÓg 2024. Our mission is to empower young people across the island of Ireland to voice their thoughts, dreams and stories through the dynamic mediums of rap, songwriting, and video.

Catch the Rhyme Island Roadshow as we bring rap workshops to young people in diverse communities across Ireland. As we draw closer to June 15th, we’ll be unveiling the songs and videos created during these workshops, spotlighting the exceptional talent of our young participants.

The pinnacle of our journey is the Rock the Block Festival in Cork City on Cruinniú na nÓg. Join us for a vibrant day brimming with music, rap showcases, and workshops in Knocknaheeny in partnership with Music Generation Cork City.

Join us in embracing the power of rap and immerse yourself in the Rhyme Island experience. Remember, rap is for everyone! Let’s amplify our voices and make some noise together!
