Since its birth nearly 30 years ago, [PIAS] has been creatively involved in the revolution of a multitude of artists, record labels and music genres as they transition from niche to crossover. We strive to work with the most inventive and original artists possible and, without compromise, take their music to the widest possible audience. The primary interest of the people that work at [PIAS] has and will always be their passion for music and, whilst we’re a commercial company, we’re 100% independent and one of the leaders of what remains a great tradition of non-corporate label culture.
[PIAS] NITES is the natural extension of our culture. These NITES are built as high quality events – quality music performed in quality spaces resulting in quality memories. Of course these events promote the work of our artists and labels, but they’re primarily intended to be unique experiences in discovery, excitement and eclecticism. More than just a concert or mini festival, [PIAS] NITES are specifically designed to challenge all our senses and leave the music and party lover with a unique experience to remember. In 2012 [PIAS] NITES are the real-time experience of what [PIAS] stands for since 1982.
Following a series of spectacular happenings across Europe, the first ever [PIAS] NITES event in Ireland will take place on Saturday, 21st July in the exquisite outdoor setting of
The Iveagh Gardens in Dublin’s city centre. And who better to headline than our own LISA HANNIGAN who will top a beautifully curated line-up of independent artists from the [PIAS] Ireland family and beyond, including Oklahoma’s brilliant OTHER LIVES, special guest CATHY DAVEY and introducing CHAMPS.
“Her voice is light and agile, her phrasing like exquisite plumage, and her folksy songs move with deceptive power, sailing on guitars, strings and Irish drama.” – Rolling Stone

A new band we have all fallen in love with having heard a few early demos. We invited them to join us as special guests because [PIAS] NItes are also about discovering new music. Dublin will be their first gig, so get down early!
