Onhand Bookings and Events

Onhand bookings is an independent promoter and booking agency based in Dublin. It was founded by Dubliner Ray O’Donoghue who’s experience varies from label and artist management to festival ownership. Ray started out in the Music Industry managing and founding Quadraphonic records, back in 1997, who’s artists included Calibre and Cork heroes Bass Odyssey. From there he ran Coastal Beats (a homegrown music and surf festival) and Hidden Soul Productions.  He’s booked and promoted some upcoming stars including Ed Sheehan and Picture This before they reached mega-stardom. More recently Ray’s known for being a co-owner and booker for the highly acclaimed Sea Sessions Surf and Music Festival. Previous acts include Dermot Kennedy, Tinie Tempah, Paul Weller, Clean Bandit, Bastille, Dizee Rascal, The Coronas and countless others. Sea Sessions is recognised as one of Irelands premier Music festivals.  Ray and Onhand also promote and book for several venues and festivals throughout the country, from Belfast to Cork and Derry to Limerick. Onhand Bookings use their extensive contacts, knowledge and relationships within the industry to find  the right act for the right event or venue. The emphasis is on quality, suitability and of course pulling power. The continuation and recurrence of business is testament to Onhand’s ability to achieve this.
