Tradfest 2022

Our January concert series is the pinnacle of the TradFest year, featuring an array of artists at the peak of their powers in stunning, historic locations throughout the city. But there’s so much more to the festival. The Smithwicks Sessions offers an intimate alternative, with free ticketed gigs in some of Temple Bar’s most beloved pubs.

Our Showcase Nights do just that – giving the best new talent an opportunity to shine for industry insiders while TradFringe gives folks a chance to explore the interesting stuff that happens on the periphery. There’s something to surprise and delight around every cobbled corner and for the littlest visitors our friends at The Ark have arts and craft workshops to spark their imaginations.
