Mother Pride Block Party
Our annual Pride celebration, The Mother Pride Block Party is set across multiple stages on the historic grounds of the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks. Starting as a spontaneous street party outside the club over a decade ago, it grew year on year becoming the official parade afterparty and largest ticketed event of Pride.
Conceived in June 2010, Mother is an LGBTQ+ club night for disco-loving gays and their friends. The club has become an institution of Dublin nightlife. Not only has the club raised the bar regarding queer club culture in Dublin, but Mother is also a main player in creating magical moments at some of Ireland’s biggest festivals, including their own Pride Block Party and Love Sensation queer music festival.
The club itself is based at its new home, Lost Lane, Grafton St. Mother has hosted tones of artists across their club and festival shows including Anitta, Rina Sawayama, Lily Allen, Kelis, Scissor Sisters; Ana Matronic & Jake Shears, Honey Dijon, Clean Bandit, Loreen, Mø, The Magician, Crazy P, Aeroplane, Nancy Wang (LCD Soundsystem), Little Boots, Rory Phillips, Alex Metric, Jacques Renault, Shit Robot, Optimo, Daithí, Le Galaxie and many more. We have also been honoured to support some of our biggest idols such as Róisín Murphy, Peaches and Grace Jones!
