Firstly, you’re in luck as hot weather is expected.

And secondly, we’ve one act you need to add to your agenda.

From the team behind Jenny Greene and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra comes Classical Collision – a twenty-four piece orchestral ensemble teaming classical music with chart-topping tracks and vocals from well-known voices like Wyvern Lingo’s Karen Crowley and Erica Cody.

This Saturday, June 22, Classical Collision is getting ready for its world premiere when it takes to Body & Soul’s main stage at 5pm.

The 45-minute set will combine tracks like Billy Eilish’s Bad Guy and Dua Lipa’s IDGAF with Debussy’s Suite Bergamasque and Mozart’s Piano Sonata- No 11 in A Major. Sounds insane but just wait until you hear it come together and be prepared to BOP.
