Since they were formed over a decade ago in 2001, The Script have become one of the most popular Irish bands of the 21st century.

Mixing the traditional Irish folk sounds with the (then) emerging sounds of rock’n’roll, Christy Moore emerged in the late 1960s as a shining new voice in Irish music. Since then he has carved out an extremely consistent career, both as a solo artist and with his bands, Planxty and Moving Hearts. Credited as a major influence on artists such as U2, The Pogues and Sinead O’Connor, Christy continues to tour and record and the dynamism of his performances, as demonstrated on his live albums Live in Dublin, At the Point: Live and Live at Vicar Street, is not to be missed.

Commonly referred to as the “Godfathers of electronic music” Kraftwerk pioneered the genre in the 1970s and their influence on other bands is incalculable. So ahead of their time, we are still catching up. Few bands arouse such intrigue as this quartet from Dusseldorf who will be performing a two hour show. Notoriously reclusive, Kraftwerk rarely provide interviews or media appearances and opt to send their robot doubles as stand ins for official photographs. Their live appearances are also becoming increasingly infrequent so Irish fans are in for a double treat witnessing this enigmatic band in breathtaking grounds, never before used for this purpose.
