A Broad Sweep Of The Infinite Spectrum Of Music-makers Resident In Ireland Descend On The Complex In Dublin City On The Last Weekend Of July, 27th – 30th, For An Essential Inspection And Celebration Of The State Of Irish Music In 2023.
This year the programme is evolving again, condensing into a weekend experience and unlike all previous years, housed within one building, The Complex in Dublin’s Smithfield district. “In previous years we’ve had more sprawling programmes, but this year, as music in Dublin rapidly spreads its wings post-pandemic we wanted to offer a more intense snapshot of what it looks like,” comments MusicTown Creative Director, Leagues O’Toole. “As our identities as performers, producers, as people change, so too does the framework by which we identify music. We are gradually transcending traditional genres. As the rigid identities that once dictated music dissolve we are experiencing a new level of diversity. Each of the 30+ artists performing over the weekend will present their own personal and unique genre, an expression of their story, their dreams and struggles.”
