Dublin Beatles Festival presents…

Not Exactly Carnegie Hall – A short play about The Beatles playing live in an illegal strip club in Liverpool in the summer of 1960, as told from the perspective of Allan Williams, the band's first manager. This play is completely based on fact. It will be performed by Padraic McGinley. The show will also include a set of songs from The Beatles played live by the great Fiach Moriarty.

There will be three qualifying rounds (10 questions per round) and the top three people from those rounds will then progress to a final on-stage in a Mastermind format. There are priceless trophies to be won… and some prizes too! (The public can watch the competition for free – the tension in the final really is something special!)

The Newspaper Taxi Men – These guys performed legendary sets at 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 Beatles Week. You can certainly bet your house on a stomping set of vintage rock'n'roll from this band when they play – It's going to be a lot of fun, get ready to dance!
