MRK Events

MRK Events and Independent Derry have been building a relationship over the past few months, to reinvigorate the music scene in the city. Bringing a fresh approach, backed up by years of experience of the events scene, it is run by a young group of locals tasked with feeding the obvious love of live music within Derry.


Setup by siblings Megan and Rory, MRK has been steadily building their reputation as one of Ireland's most exciting events promoters over the past couple of years. Working closely with An Cultúrlann, they have played a role in making The Glassworks a focal part of the city's music scene, holding sold-out gigs with acts such as Hudson Taylor, Danny O'Reilly (The Coronas) and Ryan McMullan.

With Independent Derry, MRK has also worked on establishing Rúnda Sessions - a regular concert held in one of our Independent venues, with international and local acts. Independent Derry card-holders can avail of pre-sale tickets to all MRK Events, as well as getting first-hand access to gig announcements via their email database.
