The Big Break Home

HOT PRESS & ALCATEL ONETOUCH present an amazing opportunity for young IRISH BANDS & SOLO ACTS...

Following the enormous success of last year’s inaugural event, The Big Break is back, aiming to unearth the hottest new emerging Irish talent. The ultimate prize is the opportunity for one band or solo artist to follow in the footsteps of the giants of rock ’n’ roll by appearing on the cover of Hot Press – with all the hoopla, excitement, media coverage and attention from the global entertainment industry, which that entails.

We’re giving one act a chance to be a part of Irish music history – and in doing so, to get THE BIG BREAK that will bring them to the attention of record companies, promoters, the media and more throughout Ireland, the UK, the US and beyond!

The first stage of the judging process is now taking place and the shortlist will be announced very soon!


ALCATEL ONETOUCH is Simple, Unexpected, Down to Earth, Irreverent and Colorful. We believe in unique mobile technology designing our products around individual’s lifestyles. ALCATEL ONETOUCH is a SMART MOVE.
