Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival

Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival

Various Venues, Friday 16th November - Sunday 18th November 2018

Welcome to the inaugural Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival. A weekend festival celebrating music and vinyl through interviews and discussions with musicians and writers as well as playing loads of records! A celebration of music and the vinyl record.

An idea borne out of conversations in a record shop, where else? A common memory of the importance of vinyl in our youth and a belief that it had become relevant again. The look of the cover, the feel of the sleeve, the smell of the record and the purity of the sound.. it was a format worthy of a revival! The Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival will bring together international musicians, writers and filmmakers discussing and playing vinyl records and considering their importance in our culture today.

  • The festival will be a collection of talks and discussions relating to all aspects of vinyl recordings from writing, recording, producing and performing as well as examining sleeve design and liner notes.

  • The three main venues of the festival will be: The Lexicon Library Studio, The National Maritime Museum and the Eblana Club.

  • Other aspects of the music business will be discussed, e.g. the political power of music, the economics of vinyl and why vinyl matters culturally.

  • There will be a record fair on site for the three days.

*Please note that all events on Saturday and Sunday are ‘talking' events and guests will not be playing or singing live.

Some cracks had appeared in the basement floor and essential maintenance work was ordered to be carried out. Working in the crypts below, an ancient door was opened by unsuspecting workmen. A search party was sent beneath and nothing but bloody remains were found. It is believed that this crypt was built to contain the most evil creatures of them all, the Vampirates! Bloodthirsty, evil scourge of the sea made immortal by the bite of vampires they had chanced upon adrift at sea. These barely human m

Festival of Politics

Various Locations

Whether you agree with Frank Zappa’s view that “Politics is the entertainment branch of industry”, or lean toward Jay Leno’s less charitable interpretation that “Politics is showbusiness for ugly people”, it’s hard to deny that we live in a time of unprecedented politicisation and polarisation. Our unique events ‘occupy’ spaces that within their very walls, have borne witness to historic tumult and machination. Tailors’Hall, described by some as a Political monument, has seen a lot in its 300 year history, most notably as the ‘back lane parliament’ and meeting place
