THE NEWSPAPER TAXI MEN THE NEWSPAPER TAXI MEN performed legendary sets at the Dublin Beatles Festival in 2013, 2014 and 2015… and it’s a genuine honour to finally get them back together again and blackmail them into playing for us at this year’s ‘Big Gig’ in the Workman’s Club. These guys play a brilliant selection of songs from the different periods of The Beatles (and Jon Ward’s voice will make you glad to be alive). Anyone who has seen this band play live before can confirm that they are pure quality. You would be crazy to miss this performance. And God knows when we’ll be able to blackmail them again! THE ROCKETS (Dublin) This brilliant Dublin band play the rock ‘n’ roll songs which inspired The Beatles in Hamburg between 1960 and 1962. That is to say, they play the music of Elvis, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent, Link Wray and Little Richard… and they play it with raw energy and attitude. These guys have played at festivals all over Ireland and the UK – and they have even headlined at the Cavern during Liverpool’s International Beatle Week. You can certainly bet your house on a stomping […]

Our festival started out in 2006 as a small niche traditional music festival, a first for Dublin. We wanted to create something special – a festival showcasing the cream of both Irish and international trad and folk artists while also providing a stage to promote the next generation of Irish musicianship. From modest beginnings the festival has gone from strength to strength. The past decade has has seen the festival grow in terms of size, ambition and musical breadth, with a line-up that now appeals to the purist and the merely curious alike. Although TradFest today is Ireland’s largest festival of traditional music we now also feature artists from the worlds of folk, nu-folk, and even (whisper it) rock and roll! We want to keep it special – we are still a boutique Winter festival – closing the door on the darkest season and ushering in the light and energy of Spring. TradFest also offers concert goers unique opportunities to experience live music in some of Dublin’s most historic places. From the atmospheric Kilmainham Gaol to the grandeur of City Hall, this is the difference between memorable and unforgettable.
