Boost Juic’d looking for busker talent
To celebrate the launch of Boost Juic’d Blood Orange and Raspberry Crush, Boost Drinks, along with Cool FM and Downtown, are on the lookout for Northern Ireland’s talented buskers, singers and musicians, some of whom will be chosen to perform on Boost’s Busker Corner stage in July.
This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will help showcase the musical ability of 10 gifted buskers, explained Francine Matthews, Brand Manager, Boost Drinks.
“We want to hear from buskers who are passionate about music, who love performing and want to share their talent with everyone. Boost fans have been in our corner for the last two decades and are the reason we have been so successful here.
“So, we are giving back by creating Boost’s Busker Corner, a massive platform for emerging artists who, if they are successfully chosen by Boost judges, will be heard and seen by hundreds of thousands of people.”
Buskers who want the chance to perform on Boost’s Busker Corner stage – which will be placed in a busy city centre location – in Belfast on 1st July or Derry~Londonderry on 8th July, must enter the competition online at – https://planetradio.co.uk/cool-fm/competitions/win/are-you-a-busker-and-looking-for-your-big-break/ share a clip of yourself performing and explain why you deserve one of the coveted spots.
“We are looking for five stars for each event; that means 10 people will get the chance to sing on Boost’s Busker Corner stage. There will be two ultimate winners – one from each location in Belfast and Derry~Londonderry – who will each take home an incredible prize,” added Francine.
“The two winning acts will be interviewed by Cool FM, appear on the radio station’s massive social media channels and will be support acts for one of Northern Ireland’s much-loved buskers, John Garrity, at his gig in Belfast at The Empire, on 27th August.”
Musician, John Garrity, said: “Opportunities like this don’t come along often, so I would urge every busker in Northern Ireland who loves what they do to upload their clips before the deadline of 18th June. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
“I can’t wait to share the stage with the two winners at my gig in August at the Empire in Belfast. The experience of a live performance in front of a music-loving crowd needs to be felt rather than explained. Good luck to everyone who enters, and I hope to see you soon.”
As temperatures reach record levels across Northern Ireland people are reaching for one of Boost’s refreshing Juic’d flavours which include Pineapple and Guava Punch, Mango and Tropical Blitz, Watermelon and Lime Twist and the newly launched Blood Orange and Raspberry Crush.
Francine concluded: “Our Juic’d range includes some unbelievable flavours. They are juicy, energising, irresistible and the perfect way to keep cool as temperatures rise.”

Since 2003, the Boost Drinks brand has grown from strength to strength, establishing itself as the number one selling soft drink in Northern Ireland*.
Boost was established in 2001 after founder (and MD) Simon Gray saw the opportunity to offer consumers a great quality energy drink at a fraction of the price of other brands at that time.
Two years later Boost, alongside Hardy Distribution, brought the brand to the local market, making the brand 20 years old in NI this year. Boost Drinks now owns the province’s top selling soft drink within the local independent convenience channel1.
Boost offers Energy, Sport and Iced Coffee products in various pack formats and flavours.
