Dublin Goes Country
A weekend of Country Music, Country Market, food, fun & festivities is coming to Dublin on the 14th & 15th of July.
Come out and join as we celebrate the yodelin’ yokels and everything that has made country music so popular around the world, especially in Ireland. We’re planning a weekend of amazing music, a country market with Urban Markets, delicious food, and fun for the whole family as we show off all things country and turn the city into the capital of country.
Saturday will see two great venues - The Grand Social and The Underground - turn into a proper honky tonk and hoe down with some of the best country musicians in Ireland and from overseas. We will explore modern country, alt country and old school blue grass while touching the roots to fill all the boots.
In Smithfield square on Sunday the 15th there will be live music, food, loads of activities for kids, amusements, face painting, human rodeo, Square dancing lessons and more!
Then following the daytime activities we’re throwing a party in The Grand Social and The Underground, featuring some of the best country musicians that Ireland has to offer and maybe just one or two true red blooded American acts will be hitting the stage for all to see!
