This year’s festival will be even bigger and better last year, with the addition of new venues including Whelan’s, Opium Rooms, Bernard Shaw, a new outdoor stage at National Concert Quarter’s “Vaults” and this year our main “Making Waves” Stage moves to the 5,000 capacity Leinster Cricket Grounds in the middle of Rathmines. There’s fun for all the family with the return of Canal Bank Market at Portobello – which runs monthly from May to September – and a family fun area in St. MarysCollege.
We’ll be broadening our horizons with photography and art exhibitions, opera, theatre and as much culture as we can squeeze in!! Stay tuned for more info on Dublin’s coolest festival…
