We deal with a perturbed eigenvalue Dirichlet-type problem for an elliptic hemivariational inequality involving the p-Laplacian. We show that an appropriate oscillating behaviour of the nonlinear part, even under small perturbations, ensures the existence of infinitely many solutions. The main tool in order to obtain our abstract results is a recent critical-point theorem for nonsmooth functionals.
