I would use "for" when there is intentionality, something depends on this thing being relevant to the issue in question. For example, "Here the specific conditions are irrelevant for the kind of problem the puzzle is meant to pose." But it wouldn't make much sense to say that "His music has become irrelevant for the present young audiences."
