Whether you agree with Frank Zappa’s view that “Politics is the entertainment branch of industry”, or lean toward Jay Leno’s less charitable interpretation that “Politics is showbusiness for ugly people”, it’s hard to deny that we live in a time of unprecedented politicisation and polarisation. Politics is the new black, or the new comedy, or perhaps both. The Festival of Politics was founded to reflect this new reality – to offer a platform for the open interrogation of ideas, however left (or right) of field, without fear or favour. Is this new appetite purely oppositional, a kicking against the pricks, or could it be progressive? Are we looking at a paradigm shift or witnessing a nascent movement? This is why The Festival of Politics was created and curated last year by the Temple Bar Company, a non-profit collective of business and cultural groups. Our intention is to entertain and elucidate as we challenge views on the red letter issues that dominate the political landscape and generate the headlines. Our speakers will adress #Metoo; Irexit; Brexit; Housing; the impact of Big Tech, Trumpism, Transhumanism and much more. Our unique events ‘occupy’ spaces that within their very walls, have borne witness to […]
An idea borne out of conversations in a record shop, where else? A common memory of the importance of vinyl in our youth and a belief that it had become relevant again. The look of the cover, the feel of the sleeve, the smell of the record and the purity of the sound.. it was a format worthy of a revival! The Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival will bring together international musicians, writers and filmmakers discussing and playing vinyl records and considering their importance in our culture today. The festival will be a collection of talks and discussions relating to all aspects of vinyl recordings from writing, recording, producing and performing as well as examining sleeve design and liner notes. The venues are The Lexicon Library Studio, The National Maritime Museum and the Eblana Club. Other aspects of the music business will be discussed, e.g. the political power of music, the economics of vinyl and why vinyl matters culturally. There will be a record fair on site for the three days

It’s the return of the European summer vacation! Following the attendance breaking indoor arena run that ended in May of this year, we are psyched to announce that we will be returning to Europe in May of next year to do an outdoor run of our own shows, primarily in stadiums, but also the occasional park and even a castle thrown in for good measure! Kicking off May 1, 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal, the tour will visit 25 cities across 20 countries including many cities we did not stop in on the most recent excursion. Milan, Zürich, Dublin, Berlin, Moscow, Warsaw, Bucharest, Göteborg and Brussels (first time since 1988!) are all on the itinerary this summer. We also have three firsts (go figure!) with shows in Trondheim Norway, Hämeenlinna Finland, and Tartu, Estonia. Joining us for the festivities will be Ghost and Bokassa. This tour also marks the appearance of another first in Europe with the Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket, a wildly popular addition to our menu of options for the current North American tour. The Black Ticket is your one-stop shop; a single ticket that allows you floor access to any Metallica show on the 2019 European […]
The rise of Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike has been nothing short of meteoric. From small beginnings they have risen to become one of the most in demand acts in the world of dance music. At present they sit as equals at the top table of House royalty. Festival headliners the world over and two of the most influential producers in the industry today. Almost every destination on the map has seen a visit from the energetic duo over the past few years as demand to witness their exhilarating performances has gone into overdrive. Headline sets at some of Europe’s biggest venues – including London’s prestigious Ministry of Sound and legendary Ibiza institution Pacha – and debut tours in the U.S.A, Asia and South America marked them as a pair on the ascendance across the planet. Sitting pretty at number 38 (down from 78 in 2011) in the DJ Mag top 100 they are well poised to continue their outstanding run of form.
Offering four days of open-sea racing by Irish and international teams in one of the most picturesque areas of Dublin Bay, the Volvo Dún Laoghaire Regatta 2019 is a must-do. Welcoming back many old friends from previous regattas, as well as plenty of newcomers, Dún Laoghaire will be the centre of great racing and a lively social scene, with entertainment for all ashore. The sea will be carpeted with up to 470 bobbing boats; cruisers, keelboats and dinghies from all over the UK and Ireland will be hitting the water. For Dubliners who haven’t found their sea legs, a trip out to the south coast during the regatta will mean a fun crowd, stunning views, great food and family events all along the water.
