Danny Daze, Opium Rooms
Well known for playing a fantastically broad range of tracks in his sets, from lush disco to harsher industrial sounds, Danny Daze certainly has enough ammo to keep a dance floor the size of Opium Rooms' going all night long. Though he's still quite young, this guy is a veteran and truly knows his way around the decks, having been spinning at parties since the tender age of fourteen.
The Frames, Iveagh Gardens
Gigs in the beautiful Iveagh Gardens are quite a special experience indeed. After some stunning concerts from iconic Irish acts over the past few years, The Frames take the stage for what’s sure to be a memorable gig. If you're a fan of the gang this is one gig you definitely won't want to miss! If you can't make it on the Saturday, you can head along on the Sunday instead.
Paolo Nutini, Marlay Park
The open surroundings of Marlay Park are the perfect location for Paolo Nutini’s brand of soulful guitar-driven pop. A magnetic personality and an accomplished singer, Paolo knows exactly how to thrill a huge crowd. Marlay is sure to be a gig he's savouring.
