A new open air music and arts festival is happening in Dublin next month


Gigs are coming back.

There’s another festival coming to Dublin and this time, we’re in for a very chilled out weekend.

Stretching over three days this time around, a series of eight different events taking place on one main stage at IMMA, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Royal Hospital Kilmainham.

Like the pilot festival and pilot gig that have happened in recent weeks, tickets for this concert will be available for each show in groups of four and six only.

Meadows Festival is aiming to celebrate the “diversity of talent nationwide with a focus on supporting and celebrating emerging Irish artists alongside established performers.”

Each group at the gig will be assigned a numbered pod, the same way the other concerts have been working, and those attending will get to see six different music shows as well as two spoken word gigs.

With genres like Indie, Folk, Soul and even Orchestral performances set to be announced, the festival is being created alongside the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media as a part of the Live Performance Support Scheme.

The Friday matinee is set to have David Keenan perform, with Niamh Regan, following suit. The Friday evening show will see Just Mustard, with John Francis Flynn up after them.

On the Saturday, Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson aka CMAT is taking to the stage, along with Saint Sister. A Lazaruz Soul and Lisa O’Neill are both playing on the Saturday evening.

Sunday will see Glasshouse performing the music of Kate Bush and David Bowie plus special guests during the matinee, and then move on to Prince and Jodi Mitchell later that evening.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, 21st July at 9am on, starting at €19.10 per person, and the concert is strictly over 18s.
